Nigeria, Hear Ye: The Country that Leads AI will Rule the World — Putin.

Did you know that Nigeria can rule the world?

Well, not really, but Putin is!
According to the Russian President — Vladimir Putin, the country that leads the way in Artificial intelligence research “will be the ruler of the world.” In his words:

“Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind. It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”

For now, there are 2 major artificial intelligence startups in Nigeria:
Aajoh, a Nigerian startup that uses artificial intelligence to help individuals that send a list of their symptoms via text, audio, and photographs, to diagnose their medical condition.

… And Kudi.ai.

Hopefully, the news would propel the country to key into the AI future.
The question now is, do you agree with Putin?

  1. No offence to the guys doing something about AI in Nigeria but we can’t be in top 20 bcos our government will never support AI. At least in the next 20 years
    I’m talking about full or even half of full support.
    But like Elon Musk has been saying Na AI go kill us last last

    … WELL, PUTIN’S OPINION IS RELATIVE. SURELY, AI HAS A LOT GOING FOR IT IN THE COMING YEARS, BUT, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT WILL COME TO PLAY. IN NIGERIA, WE MAY BE VERY VERY VERY SLOW TO CATCH-UP, BUT SOMEHOW, WE WILL HAVE OUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO IT WHETHER GOVERNMENT SUPPORT OR NOT…

    If you know Putin, you know he doesn’t just say things because he wants to. AI would offer the most robust protocols in military applications-some would be for attack sequences, others for defence-and it could prove to be more cost effective. AI is already being deployed in health/care services and in cars. In a few years, self driving cars would be as common as touch screens and that is just the begining-judgment day???
