The Vice Chancellor of Ghana Communication Technology University (GCTU), Prof. Emmanuel Ohene Afoakwa, has fanned a flame of technical fervor throughout the country with a ground-breaking proclamation.
He gave a stirring speech at the GCTU’s first Technology and Business Society Seminar in Accra, calling on Ghanaians to embrace modern technology unreservedly, especially Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Prof. Afoakwa asserts that, among other professions, the legal industry is about to undergo a fundamental upheaval brought on by AI and technological breakthroughs.
The vice chancellor’s statement is in line with the general technological advancement tsunami that is sweeping through industry.
He emphasized the necessity of preventative measures, such as strong legislation and activism, supported by people like Patrick Yaw.
These steps are necessary to fully realize AI’s promise while making sure it upholds national values and protects the workforce.
“We cannot agree with him any less,” Prof. Afoakwa affirmed when referring to Patrick Yaw’s advocacy. His words echo the sentiment of experts worldwide who recognize that technology is reshaping the very fabric of society. AI is no longer a distant dream but a tangible force that is permeating daily life.”
Prof. Afoakwa wisely observed that no country would voluntarily accept a technology that harms the livelihoods of its population.
However, Ghana, like any other country, cannot afford to stand still in a world that is developing at an unparalleled rate.
The choice is simple: either adapt or risk falling behind in the never-ending march of development.
The Vice Chancellor and Principal of the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, distinguished guest Prof. Letlhokwa Mpedi, stressed the revolutionary potential of AI for Africa.
In fields like electrical engineering, he discussed how AI may be a powerful instrument in the battle against poverty and unemployment.
These visionary visionaries’ echoes may be heard all around Ghana. Their statements serve as a call to action for Ghanaians to grab the chances provided by AI and new technologies.
Leaders and educators who are aware of the deep ramifications and limitless possibilities of these developments are guiding the country as it sets sail towards a digitally empowered future.
Ghana is prepared to not only keep up with but also lead the charge toward a more promising, technologically advanced future in a world where innovation knows no bounds.
The country is prepared to embrace artificial intelligence (AI) and new technologies as the catalysts for a wealthy and empowered future under the guidance of luminaries like Prof. Afoakwa and with the knowledge of international experts like Prof. Letlhokwa Mpedi.
