There is increasing awareness of the  positive impact that AI, robotics, and machine learning will have on developing countries. The fields provide opportunities for social and economic empowerment but they also pose some significant challenges.
+
Three questions arise: What role will AI, robotics, and machine learning play, how can Africa best exploit the opportunities that intelligent automation and cognitive robotics have to offer, and how can Africa offset the threats posed by global factors?
+
  
Some of these issues are discussed in [http://www.vernon.eu/publications/19_Vernon_RAM.pdf Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in Africa], [https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8931075 IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine, Vol. 26, No. 4, pp. 131-135, December 2019] and in a chapter [http://vernon.eu/publications/2021_Alupo_et_al.pdf  Realizing the Potential of AI in Africa: It All Turns on Trust], in a forthcoming book, Towards Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence Systems, M.
