Mpho Jan Kubeka, Founder at Kubeka Advanced Industries


A 20 year old entrepreneur and data science student at the EXPLORE DATA SCIENCE ACADEMY hailing from Evaton North (Vaal Triangle). He is passionate about Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and their capabilities to deliver real change for average human life.

Over the past 2 years, he has been building startups from various industries. Last year he participated in the MIT Global Startup Labs in Johannesburg (Tshimologong Digital Precinct) where participants were tasked with building a tech startup focused on the mining industry and the water industry.

Data-Science-vs.-Big-Data-vs

Him and his team developed an AI smart helmet (to boost safety and productivity for miners) which earned them 1st place.

Technology is not supposed to turn 10 people into overnight billionaires. It should rather take 10 minds to change a billion lives overnight.
