South African Expo Spotlights Futuristic Artificial Intelligence Applications

CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Hundreds of experts, speakers and exhibitors flocked on Monday to the South African port city of Cape Town to attend the AI Expo Africa 2018, a fair showcasing the latest technological developments in the field of artificial intelligence.

The expo focuses on real-world applications and trends driving the AI economy throughout the African continent.

An epa-EFE journalist present at the event documented visitors trying out an assortment of gizmos fit for the realm of science fiction, including a “smart” mirror – somewhat reminiscent of the one in the “Snow White” fairy tale – that gives users real-time fashion advice.

Virtual Reality glasses, facial recognition technology and advanced communications systems were also on display, with company representatives demonstrating their products to receptive attendees.

In addition, the large, business-focused AI community that is currently thriving across Africa was able to attend a variety of talks and roundtable panels touching on topics such as machine learning, deep learning, robotic process automation, language and imaging processing, the Internet of Things and data science and analytics.

Research on the future impact of AI reveals that it could potentially double annual economic growth rates in 2035 by changing the nature of work and creating a new relationship between man and machine.

The expo, which was officially inaugurated on Sunday, is set to conclude Tuesday.
