About Aya Data

Aya Data delivers AI solutions and services, from Africa. We cover the entire AI value chain, from Data Acquisition, to Data Annotation, to Data Science and AI.

Who are Aya Data

Aya Data is the largest Data Services and AI Solutions provider in West Africa. We are on a mission to create thousands of good jobs in advanced technology and develop the first centre of AI excellence in the region – bringing the benefits of AI to a place where it can make the biggest impact.

After 12 years of building successful enterprises in West Africa, we recognised too well the gap between the abundance of talent and the sheer lack of good jobs. It takes a graduate from one of Ghana’s 65+ universities an average of seven years to start a professional career. In 2021, we founded our company to address this imbalance and created opportunities where talent already exists. We named ourselves Aya after the Adinkra symbol for resourcefulness and endurance, a reflection of our team who have found a way to succeed in a complex industry and who never give up on a challenge.

Aya's value is in consistently delivering very high quality of work over a long period at a reasonable price, without dropping standards. They deal well with complex use cases requiring pixel perfect precision, fast communication means very little rework. This helps us to bring our models to production faster. They have become an invaluable part of our annotation process.

We had many photos to label in a short period of time, so we decided to outsource the task.

Aya Data did not only meet our time constraints, but also our complicated annotation requirements
