Soweto School girls to solve social challenges using artificial intelligence

50 Soweto school girls will showcase their smarts, creativity and competitiveness in the first AI in Soweto boot camp. The girls, aged between 15-18 years old, will use design thinking and artificial intelligence (AI) to think holistically about how they can tackle social challenges using technology.

Based in South Africa’s most iconic township, and in collaboration with headline sponsor Old Mutual and technology partner Microsoft South Africa, the intervention will showcase the aptitude and skill of tomorrow’s problem solvers addressing challenges of today, under the banner of ‘AI for Good’.
