Data Science and AI in Africa: The Impact of Communities

In recent times, Data Science and AI is growing drastically within African Communities and this is an effect of the continuous impact by different communities.

In this session we will explore how the study of Data Science, Machine Learning and AI has grown over the years and how different communities has made efforts to improve the State of Data Science and AI.
I will be making reference to certain communities who are championing the move, which includes Data Scientist Network (DSN), The Data Community Africa ( Hosts of DataFest Africa 2022) and The Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadorship Program.

Of course this claim of growth cannot be justified by Assumptions or Perception. I'll be using Data Extracts for the Kaggle Survey 2018 to 2022 to show how Data Scientist from Africa have grown
