The aim of the Leeds Africa Hub is to promote and enable collaboration between the University of Leeds and researchers across the African continent working in any areas that utilise data science, machine learning or artificial intelligence. A continued drive to advance skills and education in data science across Africa has many benefits, but will be particularly relevant in helping to reduce global inequality and spur economic growth.
With these collaborations we will make significant progress toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including decent work and economic growth, quality education, gender equality, and partnerships for the goals. Specific collaborations by Hub members are also well placed to address affordable and clean energy, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, and life on land.
