Why are we organizing NASSMA?

While major advances in AI have largely been developed by actors in Europe and North America, the benefits of AI have yet to be observed in emerging countries. Applying AI to healthcare, agriculture, industry automation, etc… can have significant and immediate impact in such countries. Through this event, our aim is to initiate an AI ecosystem in the region and provide a platform to foster collaboration between the different actors in the field, including academic and industrial parties.
