InstaDeep CEO Karim Beguir Influential Africans



InstaDeep CEO Karim Beguir has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Africans by a leading pan-African news magazine. The New African cited his leadership and innovation in AI, and his voice as a leader in the industry as it honoured him in its annual ranking for a second consecutive year.

He appears alongside Nigerian Tycoon Aliko Dangote, President of the African Development Bank Group, Akinwumi Adesina, Eritrean AI researcher Timnit Gebru and the UN Environment Programme’s Elizabeth Maruma Mrema in the magazine’s January 2024 edition.

“I’m humbled to be featured alongside such incredible personalities,” Karim said. “This encourages me to continue the critical work to help make AI an opportunity for Africa. Congratulations to everyone on the list – your work is key for our continent!” 

Democratising AI in Africa is a key cause for InstaDeep’s Co-Founder and CEO. Within the international AI community, he champions responsible AI practices, contributing to key global initiatives, including the World Economic Forum Council on the Future of AI and participating in the UK Government-hosted AI Safety Summit at Bletchley Park in November.
