Kayode obtained a BSc in Industrial Mathematics at the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) Nigeria in 2012. Following the completion of his one-year National Youth Service, he worked briefly in the ICT department of a food company before joining a start-up company in Nigeria as a Freelance Web Developer where he gained some hands-on programming experience.
During his 10-month structured masters programme in Senegal from 2015 to 2016, he was introduced to machine learning and found it fascinating. Since then, he immerses himself in honing his theoretical and practical understanding of the field through self-study. His ongoing masters research programme at Stellenbosch University involves extracting objects of interest from satellite and aerial images using deep learning techniques.
Alongside his master's programme, Kayode is moonlighting as a Data Scientist at Aerobotics where he hopes to break new grounds.
