Three African nations—Nigeria, Kenya, and Rwanda—have signed 'The Bletchley Declaration,' a commitment to address AI-related risks. This historic agreement was made during the AI Safety Summit in the UK. Nigeria's Minister for Digital Economy, Bosun Tijani, emphasized the importance of safe, ethical, and inclusive AI development. Rwanda has already made strides in AI policy, allocating significant funding for AI initiatives, and becoming a hub for AI research. Kenya's participation marks a renewed commitment to tackle AI-related risks, although it lacks a formal national AI strategy.
