Kate is the Founder and CEO of Amini, a company on a mission to solve Africa's data scarcity by building its environmental data infrastructure using space and AI technologies. With over a decade of experience in leading AI innovation at global tech companies like NVIDIA, Intel, and Arm, she has a proven track record of delivering cutting-edge solutions that drive social impact and transform communities.
“Data is the start of any economic revolution,” says Kallot. “Our thesis is that one of the reasons why the continent hasn’t been able to develop itself as fast as the Global North is because of the lack of data.”*
Originally from Central African Republic, Kate is a recognised expert in the AI field, advising international organisations and governments on the potential of data and AI to drive systemic change in Africa.
As well as this latest achievement, she has received multiple accolades for her work, including being named Business Insider Top 100 Transformer and VentureBeat Women in AI Rising Star 2020.
