Cortex Logic at AI Expo Africa from 3 to 5 September 2019
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, 17 July 2019 – Cortex Logic at AI Expo Africa from 3 to 5 September 2019
Cortex Logic, a division of Cortex Group, is an African Artificial Intelligence (AI) Software and Solutions company that helps businesses thrive in the Smart Technology Era. We work across multiple business and industry domains seeking to augment and automate legacy processes, ultimately transforming them into intelligent systems, using the Cortex Logic AI Engine. We leverage this unique AI Engine for Business to solve strategically and operationally relevant problems by unlocking the value offered by the 4th Industrial Revolution and by mobilizing Data Science, Internet of Things (IoT), as well as Big Data and Analytics.
Cortex Logic is excited to announce that we’ll be co-sponsoring and, once again, participating in AI Expo Africa 2019, taking place at the Century City Conference Centre from the 3rd to the 5th of September 2019 – considered the largest B2B-focused Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Community and Trade event in Africa. This year’s event builds on the success of the inaugural event held in Cape Town in 2018, a gathering of CxOs, entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors in the region – focusing on real-world AI and Data Science business applications. Last year’s event was supported by 700+ delegates, 270+ companies, 60+ speakers and 40+ sponsors, and will see the support from large organizations such IBM, PWC, Microsoft, Deloitte, Telkom and SMBs including Genii AI, InstaDeep, and Cortex Logic this year. International community members such as the ITU, French Embassy, Business France, Data Science Nigeria and South Africa’s Fliptin, will also be welcomed at this year’s event.
Artificial Intelligence, the adoption and deployment thereof, is progressing at an exponential rate – what didn’t exist a few months ago is now possible, and we’ll continue to see new developments every day. Deon Van Heerden, CEO of Cortex Logic, said “Events such as AI Expo Africa, not only accelerates the dialogue on advances in the field of AI but can be used to educate the world on continental developments specifically and, perhaps more importantly, connect vital stakeholders within the African AI Ecosystem. Every stakeholder within this delicate ecosystem has a crucial role to play in the resolution of homegrown economic and social challenges through AI – but, one has to remain open-minded, show up, leverage these opportunities for engagement, form valuable partnerships and work together to progress Africa. That’s why Cortex Logic grabbed at the opportunity to form part of AI Expo Africa once again, this year, as a sponsor – we’ve got nothing to lose, and even more to gain”.
This year’s event will also see a range of new features, ensuring maximized and immersive learning experiences for CxOs, entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors – including an African AI Demo Zone, AI Innovation Cafe, AI Art & Music Challenge, Innovation Wall, as well as a series of intensive executive and skills development workshops. “Cortex Logic will form part of the 36 vendors exhibiting in the Expo Hall and will leverage this opportunity to engage with key stakeholders – not only to discover how our AI Engine for Business can solve their operational and strategic problems, but to discover ways in which Cortex Logic can help African youth, entrepreneurs and businesses thrive in the Smart Technology Era”, said Dr Jacques Ludik, Founder and Managing Director of Cortex Logic, as well as Founder and Group CEO of Cortex Group. “We’re also excited to form part of the track speaking programme, consisting of 67 talks, keynotes and panel discussions – where we’ll engage in and deliver on crucial topics including AI Ethics, AI Readiness, AI for Good, Women in AI, education, and investment”, Dr Ludik concluded.
As AI continues to progress and push the boundaries of what’s possible, events dedicated to this topic will grow as well and, along with it, the African AI Ecosystem. We encourage you to join us at AI Expo Africa 2019, build your network, form part of the dialogue, and invest in your business or career.
