Dubai launches global blueprint for artificial intelligence

Dubai has launched a blueprint for Artificial

 

Intelligence (AI), a yearly plan that will focus on harnessing the technology’s potential to

 

improve quality of life around the world.

 

The plan begins with the appointment of a CEO for AI in each government entity, and will be

 

followed by the establishment of an AI and WEB3 Incubator, which will develop into the

 

largest global hub for AI and technology companies. The hub will attract innovators, startups

 

and AI leaders from around the world and support of development of their ideas into

 

successful enterprises or real-world applications.

 

The plan also includes the introduction of AI Week into schools and colleges to help integrate

 

AI applications into the educational system. This will enable students to develop skills that

 

align with future market needs such as coding, and introduce them to the latest tools and best

 

practices in this field.

 

The blueprint will see the launch of the Dubai Commercial License for Artificial Intelligence,

 

which will support the development of the sector by attracting specialized companies and

 

individuals to Dubai, stimulate investments, and solidify Dubai’s position as a preferred

 

business destination for technology and innovation companies. As part of the plan, land will

 

be allocated for data centers, which will contribute to the development of world-class

 

infrastructure that can support Dubai’s digital transformation journey.

 

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President,

 

Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, said: “In 1999, we launched Dubai’s digital

 

transformation, a venture that has continued to achieve milestones leading to the recent

 

unveiling of the Dubai Digital Strategy last year. Our record-breaking accomplishments have

 

established us as the premier hub for billion-dollar global enterprises in the technology and

 

artificial intelligence sectors within the region.”

 

His Highness added, "In recent years, the evolution of artificial intelligence has accelerated,

 

presenting numerous opportunities for nations and governments adept at utilizing it, while

 

posing challenges for those unable to keep pace. This required swift and adaptive action plans

 

responsive to the rapid changes in technology and artificial intelligence.”

 

Dubai’s annual plan for accelerating the adoption of AI and implementations across all

 

sectors is a major component of Dubai’s ambition to become the best city in the world for

 

technology utilization and the fastest to adopt advanced applications.
