BEL'S AI INITIATIVE tutors represented our organization with dignity at the Deep Learning INDABA 2023 Conference, which took place from September 3 to 9, 2023, in Accra, Ghana. We are proud of their contribution and their commitment to upholding BEL'S AI INITIATIVE's values and vision.
In August, we focused our discussions on CHAT GPT. On 26 August, an expert was on hand to guide you through the effective use of CHAT GPT, particularly in the field of digital marketing, while addressing the ethical issues associated with its use.
On 19 August 2023, we had two contributions to our monthly discussion on CHAT GPT. The second was with an AI expert to talk about the CHAT GPT artificial intelligence model.
On 19 August 2023, we had two contributions to our monthly discussion on CHAT GPT. The first was with an expert in automatic natural language processing to tell us about the NLP and CHAT GPT architectures.
On July 22, we hosted our monthly discussion with two AI experts to edify us with the introduction to Machine Learning and on the basics of Preprocessing Numerical Data in ML.
On June 24, we'll be hosting our monthly discussion with two AI experts to edify us on the challenges of NLP in the African context.
First edition of the BEL'S AI FOR HER project: In 03 days, we trained a group of female students from the IUT in Ngaoundéré, Cameroon, in the basics of AI.
On May 27, 2023, we invited two AI experts to guide and edify us about the different career profiles in the field.
For the first discussion with our community, we've invited two AI experts to discuss the question: How do you start learning AI?
We held our very first event in the great south of Cameroon, precisely in the city of Yaoundé, at the invitation of LES GO SCIENCENT on Saturday 15 April.
Be the first to know about our events and trainings and participate in bi-weekly discussions about AI by giving your opinion and learn from others.
We are preparing the 2023 edition of the BEL'S AI HUB project. See the 2022 edition for more information.
On 18th February we celebrated the Youth Day with our community.
We have very recently finished with this project. It is one of the success stories of 2022 for us.
-BELS AI INITIATIVE SERVICES-
These are awareness, orientation and discussion sessions around artificial intelligence. This service concerns communities (companies or not) wanting a conference on a specific aspect of artificial intelligence.
This program is reserved for ordinary citizens, i.e. anyone wishing to discover AI. We will soon be overwhelmed with AI-based solutions and it is necessary for users to have an idea of how they work.
It will be for example a group of students wanting to learn how to design an artificial intelligence model or a group of professionals wanting to know how to apply the artificial intelligence modules within their activities.
This program is reserved for people who want to produce AI-based solutions. To access this training, you will need to have a project that you would like to carry out through AI. Throughout the program, we provide learners with the tools to lead an end-to-end AI project.
This program is reserved for anyone who does not find themselves in the services described above. In this case, he gets closer to the team and poses his problem and together we establish content that is adequate to his needs.
-ABOUT THE INITIATIVE-
BEL'S AI INITIATIVE works for the promotion and insertion of artificial intelligence as a tool for solving the problems we face on a daily basis in Cameroon and Africa. Although, Several platforms, digital conferences have raised awareness on the power of data science and the impact it could have in our lives, there is still a low rate of use of these tools in our society for the following reasons :
Lack of technical skills in the field
Lack of confidence in different technological tools.
Lack of interest from people not in technology fields.
-BELS AI PROJECTS-
BEL’S AI HUB
This project aims to introduce students new to computer science to machine learning methods with python libraries. It is also an opportunity to create contact between learners and people already working in the field.
BEL’S AI HOPE
This project aims to promote STEM in secondary schools in rural areas of Cameroon. The objective is to give them tools for a better choice of studies and careers and to finance higher education for the poorest.
BEL’S AI FOR HER
This project aims to teach the basics of artificial intelligence and python language to groups of girls and women. Each month, we would like to train 15 to 20 girls at reduced costs.
