First edition of IndabaX Tunisia to take place Saturday, April 13 at Sup’Com

The first edition of IndabaX Tunisia is due to be held next Saturday, April 13 at Higher School of Communications of Tunis (SUP’COM) .

The event provides an opportunity for the Tunisian Artificial Intelligence (AI) community to meet, discover the most recent advances in the field and exchange ideas.

InstaDeep and IEEE SUP’COM announce in a statement the arrival of the Africa-spanning Deep Learning event initiative ‘IndabaX’ to Tunis. By bringing the event to Tunisia, the company and the student branch aim to place Tunisia among the leading African countries in Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Deep Learning IndabaX Tunisia will offer a day of teaching, presentations of state-of-the-art research, knowledge exchange and debates around Machine Learning (ML) and AI today.

With support from the other partners and sponsors, namely SUP’COM, Google, Orange, Smart Tunisia, Endeavor and GDG Carthage, the event pushes boundaries on R&D by highlighting the groundbreaking efforts already taking place in AI in Tunisia. It provides an opportunity to experiment on ways to further strengthen the Tunisian ML community by presenting global industry trends and developments.
Furthermore, as IndabaX Tunisia encourages closer collaboration between universities and industry, the event will provide a unique platform to initiate mutually beneficial relationships.

Structured through three program sections, the day offers a combination of theoretical and practical initiatives. The first part is devoted to quality lectures led by leading figures and internationally renowned researchers in AI, including CEO and co-founder of InstaDeep, Karim Beguir, Research Scientists at Google DeepMind, Ulrich Paquet and Stephan Gouws, Researcher at the University of Colorado, Mourad Gridach, and Head of Machine Learning at InstaDeep, Marek Barwinski.
The second part is reserved for workshops, facilitating an opportunity to put theory into practice and acquire skills related to the most advanced AI topics.

Finally, the third part of the event will provide to Tunisian researchers an opportunity to present their research in AI and data science through a poster competition.
The InstaDeep and SUP’COM co-hosted the event as part of the Deep Learning Indaba movement, an unmissable machine learning and artificial intelligence event series in Africa.
During the event, the best poster is selected by a jury of experts, and the winning author will be offered the opportunity to present his work at the main Indaba event in Nairobi, Kenya, on August 25-31, 2019.

More than 300 visitors are expected in this first edition of IndabaX Tunisia.
