Africa’s success relies on creative and innovative partnerships.

The future for Africa is bright thanks to the continent’s innovative and creative entrepreneurs and start-ups who are all working together towards a common goal – the success of the people who call Africa their home. One such collaboration was announced at MWC Kigali this week.

Chenosis – a pan African Accelerator Platform – has partnered with Botlhale AI Solutions, in a venture that will remove language as a barrier when it comes to the use of AI.

“We provide our clients with conversational AI allowing them to reduce support costs, Increase customer reach, conversion & retention,” says Thapelo Nthite, co-founder and CEO of Botlhale. The company is partnering with Chenosis on their Accelerator platform enabling businesses to engage with their client in their own language.

Chenosis is a Pan-African Accelerator platform that enables the creation of more efficient and affordable code and is a member of the MTN Group. “It is a place that helps Businesses & individuals to find what they need to re-imagine their path to progress,” says Waseem Amra, head of product at Chenosis.

Computer systems have become an integral part of our everyday lives and as a result, natural spoken language is a desired form of human computer interaction. Bothahle have a suite of Natural Language Processing tools, built to help service providers and developers unleash the power of human language technologies in African languages.

“Through a simple subscription on Chenosis, we have now made this service accessible to enterprises across the continent. We believe it should be an enabler for people to access and engage with their service providers effectively. We are able to help business engage with their clients in their own language in both written & spoken word “, says Nthite.

“We encourage enterprises to explore how our API’s can solve multiple problems across their value chain. With an eco-system of API’s, we’re able to help businesses not only mitigate the risk of mobile identity fraud, but also explain how this is possible in their clients language,” says Amra.
