Hello everyone, and welcome to Episode 73!!
Chris Emezue from Nigeria is my guest today. He is an MSc student in Mathematics and Data Science at Technische Universität München (TUM) in Germany. In this episode, we learn that he wanted to be an inventor when he was younger. His parents, who instilled a reading culture in him, nurtured the dream. This enabled him to learn more about being an inventor and change the world by solving problems.
This went hand in hand with his interest in math and physics during his high school years. Chris values the fact that his parents let him choose his own path after high school. He decided on the route of Mathematics and then applied for a scholarship to study abroad. He received a scholarship to pursue a Math Bachelor's degree in Russia. We talk about his time in Russia and how he transitioned from Nigeria to a foreign country. He also discusses his relocation to Germany, where he is currently based.
Chris's childhood dream of being an inventor has come true. He is now the co-initiator of Ed AI, working on natural language processing for low-resource African languages. He explains how he became involved and the significance of this project. I discussed all of this, as well as many other topics. Take a listen.
