Kampala International University has partnered with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) with its dedicated society for Technology and Engineering Management (IEEE TEMS), and different universities, corporates and government entities in Africa to bring the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) challenge to Uganda.
Africa IoT & AI challenge is a regional capacity-building and pre-incubation program for senior university students and startups that have innovative ideas in the areas of IoT and AI and related fields to enable and leverage a smart future.
The challenge aims to receive Minimum Viable Projects (MVPs) in automotive energy, healthcare, education, smart manufacturing, retail and e-commerce, smart buildings, smart homes, smart agriculture, smart transportation, FinTech and others.
A minimum viable product (MVP) is a version of a product with just enough features to be usable by early customers who can then provide feedback for future product development.
“The program unites the resources and experiences of organizers and their respective partners to avail all the required materials, mentors and expertise to the participating projects,” reads a statement on the challenge website africaiotai.org.
