The Artificial Intelligence Research Unit (AIRU) at UCT was established to enhance the university’s AI capabilities, focusing on solving Africa’s development issues. Many AI tools come from outside the continent, but AIRU stresses the importance of African researchers developing AI solutions that are contextually relevant.

Situated in the Computer Science Department, AIRU’s main goal is to bridge AI research and knowledge gaps. By treating AI as a decision support tool, AIRU works towards creating a research and innovation ecosystem that can address African challenges effectively.
