“Taking part in the process of teaching our mother tongue to a computer is the new way of preserving our culture and its transmission to future generations. Thanks to Zindi and Google for organizing this workshop about ASR in Africa. I got the chance to learn a lot of ideas towards this common goal.”

“With a vision to support the development of a million Artificial Intelligence/ digital technology talents in Africa and enabling the development of context-aware AI solutions to enhance the quality of life, we are very elated to be part of this partnership because it has provided a sizeable local text dataset that participants collected and used. The hackathon offered each participant a real-world, hands-on, and immersive experience to sharpen their skills as they learned to solve local problems.”
