Majalidiano is a platform bringing renown global thought leaders to the grassroots across Kenya targeting Kenya’s Forgotten Bottom Millions across the counties.

The first event will be focusing on how we can use emerging technologies and innovation to create jobs, create businesses, products/services and better lives for ourselves.

These Town Hall meetings will be held across 6 different locations: Kisumu, Kakamega, Siaya, Miwani, Nairobi and Mombasa.

The first guest is a brilliant self-taught Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovator & speaker from the Netherlands. He has never been to University. He is a high school graduate who schooled and grew up in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Babusi Nyoni, a 31 year old Zimbabwean and a self-taught emerging technology pundit will be sharing how he began his journey leaving Zimbabwe as an economic refugee, entering South Africa, where he lived for 5 years before moving to the Netherlands.

In 2016 he created what Forbes magazine described as “the world’s first Artificial Intelligence football commentator” for the UEFA Champions League final. In the same year, he created a prototype for the prediction of human displacement in Africa using artificial intelligence & thereafter worked with UNHCR to actualize a pilot project in the same field.

He founded the Ulwazi Accelerator in 2018 to equip young Zimbabweans with the skills needed to contribute to the global digital economy.

In 2019 he created an app for the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease & presented his findings at Oxford University on the Skoll Foundation stage.

Babusi has a strong passion for fresh new ideas that will change the lives of those around him and is a firm believer that AI is shaping the technological zeitgeist worldwide.
