Discover insights from a new study by Qubit Hub, revealing that Africa should prioritize strengthening its AI ecosystem before rushing into regulations. The study emphasizes the need for improved data infrastructure, talent development, and market-focused AI solutions for sustainable growth.

A recent study by Qubit Hub, an African-based AI research lab, challenges the call for immediate AI regulation in Africa. Instead, the study suggests focusing on building a robust foundation for the AI ecosystem. Key recommendations include expanding computing facilities, enhancing internet connectivity, funding data centers, advancing talent capabilities, and formulating policies to address data set constraints. The report highlights the importance of careful consideration in collecting, handling, and storing indigenous African data to avoid biases in AI systems. Furthermore, it underscores the need for increased investment in data infrastructure, talent development, and market-specific AI solutions to address real-world challenges in Africa. The study proposes a two-way solution: innovative approaches reflecting socio-economic challenges and a focus on niche markets to ensure the commercial viability of AI solutions on the continent.
