Richie Etwaru –a Guyanese tech entrepreneur and Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of spatial AI company Mobeus– put the idea in the minds of the Nexus 2023 audience: AI is an equalizer, and the Nearshore finds itself in a unique position, historically speaking, to make the best out of a level playing field.
