The Africa AI Stories Series features interviews with key startups, corporates and initiatives in the AI space
The company’s co-founder and director Nick Bradshaw (pictured above, left with DataProphet’s country sales manager Isaac Matsa) says the aim behind the series is to tell “an inspiring good news story” about home grown AI innovation across the region.

Bradshaw said AI TV has plans to release more stories this year. He called on those that would like to join the initiative, as well as those that want to be interviewed as part of the series to get in touch with the company.
