The Deep Learning Indaba is proud to launch the 2019 awards programme. This year, in partnership with the Africa Oxford Initiative and Black in AI, three awards will be given: the Kambule Doctoral Award, the Kambule Masters Award and the Maathai Impact Award, to recognise excellence in African research and applications.
The winner of the Kambule Doctoral Award will be fully sponsored by the Africa Oxford Initiative to present their research at the University of Oxford. The winners of the Kambule Masters Award and Maathai Impact Award will be fully sponsored by Black in AI to attend NeurIPS 2019 and the Black in AI workshop, co-located with NeurIPS, in December 2019. Winners of each award will also receive a cash prize.
These awards celebrate those who show the strength of African machine learning, and we encourage as many applications from across Africa as possible. Click on the buttons below for more information on eligibility and selection criteria, and to apply.
