Ghana is blessed to have all these IT giants to be opening their offices in the capital, Accra. No wonder Ghana is said to be the gateway to Africa
Google has joined Twitter to open its office in Ghana. But what is artificial intelligence? and what does it mean for Google to open its AI research centre in Ghana?
“Artificial intelligence can simply be defined as the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines as opposed to natural intelligence displayed by animals and humans. Specific applications of artificial intelligence include expert systems, natural language, machine vision and speech recognition”
This is another big news for Ghana as the intervention by Google is expected to boost the country’s IT industry. It will be an eye opener and point Ghana in the investors eye as the best place in Africa business can thrive.
Many Ghanaians express their happiness online after seeing beautiful pictures of the edifice.
