Before we begin to list tech events this week, we would like to wish all Muslims a blissful Eid celebration.
We understand the indispensability of tech in our lives, so we list these tech events to help you understand a bit of tech one event at a time. We value conversations and the impact therein.
These are the tech events happening around us this week: May 2–8, 2022.
The GAGE Awards and Exhibition is an international tech expo that will feature 100 of the most innovative tech brands in EdTech, Fintech, Agri-tech, Energy and utilities, Supply chain and logistics, investors/VC’s, Telecom, information, content production, etc. currently operating in Africa or with an eye on getting into Africa.
Themed CO-CREATE, the event is a celebration of the collaborative process that helps bring great ideas to life.
It will showcase current and future innovations by participating brands, with a fireside chat that includes tech influencers, entrepreneurs, and policy formulators. Founders will have an opportunity to engage communities directly in a media session at the Launchpad and the visitors will have a chance to hear VCs, innovators, and policymakers address pressing issues in technology in the Fireside chat.
Co-Create 2022 was supposed to hold May 5 – 6 (9:00 AM daily) at Landmark Event Centre, Plot 2&3, Water Corporation Drive, Victoria Island, Lagos, but has been postponed to June 9 – 10.
Learn Robotics with Edmoss is a three-month training that will expose attendees to the basics and advanced knowledge of Robotics. Robotics is an interdisciplinary sector of science and engineering dedicated to the design, construction and use of mechanical robots.
Robots are gaining intellectual and mechanical capabilities that don’t put the possibility of a R2-D2-like machine out of reach in the future.
Though relatively young, the robotics industry is filled with an admirable promise of progress that science fiction could once only dream about. From the deepest depths of our oceans to thousands of miles in outer space, robots will be found performing tasks that humans couldn’t dream of achieving alone.
The training will also give attendees a concrete grasp of robotics, including different types of robots and how they’re applied across industries. From the use of programming languages to programme hardware, attendees are sure to get value for the $200 they pay for the training.
