Interest in Deep Learning (DL), Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to spread throughout Africa, with Madagascar playing a prominent role by hosting the local edition of the globally renowned event, IndabaX, from October 19 to 21, 2023, at the Skate Park Antanimena in the capital city of Antananarivo. This marks the second edition for Madagascar following the 2022 event. Following the success of the Deep Learning Indaba 2023 in Accra, Ghana, Indabax promises to be a crucial step in strengthening the DL, ML, and AI community on the island and beyond.

A tradition of excellence in AI

IndabaX, as the local version of Indaba, shares the same goals as its continental counterpart. These goals include developing local communities, enhancing AI skills, encouraging international collaboration, promoting diversity and inclusion, inspiring the Malagasy youth, and creating a positive economic impact in Madagascar. In other words, it's an opportunity to foster the development of innovative technological solutions tailored to local challenges.

A comprehensive program to stimulate creativity

The program of Indabax 2023 promises to be rich and diverse, designed to stimulate creativity and collaborative learning. The event will feature keynote presentations by renowned local experts in the field of AI, who will share their insights on current and future AI trends. Interactive workshops will also allow participants to deepen their AI skills and work on practical projects.


Additionally, the event will host an exciting Hackathon where innovative minds will have the opportunity to create real-time AI solutions to address tangible problems. This friendly competition environment will encourage creativity and problem-solving.


An Idéathon, a key component of IndabaX, will provide participants with the opportunity to propose innovative ideas to address specific challenges related to Madagascar. This exercise in creative thinking will showcase AI's ability to provide solutions to local problems and stimulate entrepreneurship within the community.

IndabaX 2023 is more than just a conference. It is an immersive experience designed to catalyze AI growth in Madagascar and encourage innovation that will shape the future of the island. Participants can expect an event rich in learning, collaboration, and inspiration opportunities.

IndabaX: the AI journey in Madagascar

Indabax, following in the footsteps of Indaba, offers an exceptional opportunity to the Malagasy AI community. The event will bring together researchers, professionals, and students passionate about AI to share their knowledge, discuss the latest advancements, and explore collaborative projects. Moreover, Indabax will promote the development of local AI skills, creating a pool of Malagasy experts.

Diversity and inclusion will continue to be central themes of Indabax, allowing participants from diverse backgrounds to contribute to a more equitable and dynamic AI community in Madagascar.

For this 2023 edition, the event will be organized by several entities, all operating in the fields of Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence, including SmartPredict, the University of Science & Technology Indian Ocean, AlgoMada, and the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence of Madagascar (LIAM).

Positive impact on Madagascar

As an island with exceptional natural resources and unique challenges, Madagascar is well positioned to harness AI in various domains, thereby leveraging it as a driver of local economic and socio-cultural development. The event will equip the country with skills and expertise to creatively and effectively address these challenges.

The Malagasy youth will also find inspiration in Indabax by discovering successful AI models, encouraging the next generation to explore careers in this rapidly growing field.

IndabaX 2023 is the perfect opportunity for Madagascar to establish itself as a leader in the field of AI in Africa. Inspired by the success of Indaba 2023, Indabax promises to promote AI development on the island, stimulate technological growth, and address Madagascar's specific challenges with innovative solutions. This event will highlight Madagascar's potential and strengthen its position on the map of AI in Africa.
