Google has announced it is to open its first African artificial intelligence research centre in Ghana later this year.
Google boss Sundar Pichai said the multi-national was "really looking forward" to opening the centre.
The centre will open later this year in Accra, the company said in an official statement.
"We’re committed to collaborating with local universities and research centers, as well as working with policy makers on the potential uses of AI in Africa," the statement continued.
The Accra office will join similar AI research centres in places like Paris, Tel Aviv, and, of course, San Francisco.
