To ensure positive socio-economic changes, impact-oriented robotics firm, Kalibotics has disclosed plans to host an AI fest and readies, which will showcase new technologies and its application of Robotics in agriculture, education, security and manufacturing.

The firm said it aims to pull Africa from the rare to the fore of this innovation through ‘AI Chessbot’ forum which holds in Abuja with a team of experts who will help participants understand how to take advantage of technological revolution known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), which entails the emergence of fields such as robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), 3-D printing, and quantum computing.

The co-founder, Kalibotics, Mr. Mayowa Abejirin said: “Our ambition is to improve the standard of living of Africans and bring millions of people out of poverty through application of technology.”

Founded in 2019, Kalibotics builds Intelligent Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, autonomous drones, and smart robots with features such as obstacle avoidance, line-following, object detection, robot manipulators; and smart farming systems.

Kalibotics is a major proponent of the 4IR narrative. The firm created an AI Chessbot Expo that demonstrates the immense potential of 4IR technologies.

Robotics technologies have become important tools that influence every aspect of life and have the potential to improve lives and work practices, enhance levels of service, and increase efficiency & safety levels.

In developing new innovation, Kalibotics utilised technologies such as, robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, raspberry Pi, and 3-D printing.

The firm reaffirmed that it’s poised to use the power of robotics and AI to combat hunger in sub-saharan Africa and has several next-generation projects ongoing for these industries to boost security, education, agriculture as well as building proto-types of multisensory drones (UAVs) with multi-spectral imaging capabilities for precision agriculture.
