#9 - Artificial intelligence and lifelong learning
In this episode, we talk to Azizjon Azimi, the founder of Tajrupt Artificial Intelligence Academy in Tajikistan.
For many years Azizjon studied in the US, and worked in Silicon Valley. One day he decided to quit his job and go home to create the first start-up in artificial intelligence in the whole of Central Asia.
What led him to do this?
Why did he decide to set-up an AI Academy in one of the poorest countries in the region?
How can you have an AI strategy in a country where the internet connection ranks among the worst in the world?
And, last but not least, how is he creating opportunities for lifelong learning and turning Tajikistan into a centre for AI?
