The debut of Africa’s first humanoid robot by Uniccon Group, an Abuja-based tech startup, significantly increased the use of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) on the continent. The ideation, design, production, and use of robots are all part of the engineering discipline known as robotics. The goal of the robotics industry is to develop intelligent machines that can support people in a number of ways. There are various types of robotics.
Because they can work in unsafe areas, robots replace harmful professions that humans once performed. They are capable of carrying out repetitive duties, lifting dangerous materials and hefty loads.
The Africa Robotics Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Omeife, the first humanoid robot in Africa, was launched by Osinbajo. The success of Omeife is a blatant sign that young people in Nigeria are seizing the initiative and making significant strides in artificial intelligence (AI) development and other technological advancements; as a result, the federal government is fully supportive of such development as it stands to support national development and the fight against insecurity.
The government is working on a national data strategy to make data accessible for scientific use because artificial intelligence is all about data and if their data is skewed, users will get a skewed result; therefore, humans must ensure that there is the correct data and a data that fully represents culture and values.
The employment of robots in farming, education, building roads and cities, as well as for information collection, bomb detection, and combating insecurity are only a few of the major advantages of AI for national development.
Depending on the application, Omeife has a lot to offer in terms of enhancing security. It can be used for surveillance, intelligence gathering, Robo-army, profiling, lie detection, or even in the area of sending robots on missions that are extremely dangerous, but with the humanoid in place, all of these will be taken care of. Omeife will release a variety of products, including hardware, a humanoid robot, and a service. These products will generate money for the company.
