The Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DCAI) has opened at Emirates Towers, AREA 2071, according to H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF). The new Center intends to help government organizations deploy cutting-edge technologies across important industries.
According to H.H., Dubai is continuing to adopt new artificial intelligence and future technologies at a quick pace in line with the advancement of technological innovation worldwide. This aligns with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision and directives, which aim to position Dubai as a global leader in foreseeing new possibilities and problems and influencing the future. He is also Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai.
“When it comes to using artificial intelligence (A.I.) throughout its many agencies, Dubai’s government will lead the world. This new Center is the first step in achieving this objective and creating future services to keep up with the rapid growth of technology.
To increase efficiency and optimize government services, H.H. urged all branches of Dubai’s government staff to use generative A.I. tools.
“We hope to see practical applications of generative A.I. technologies in our government sector,” Sheikh Hamdan continued. As technology develops rapidly, Dubai is committed to testing and utilizing it as quickly as possible for societal good. We want the effect and outcomes of new AI-powered government technologies to be evident.
H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the second deputy ruler of Dubai and the head of the Dubai Media Council, was present at the launch event.
One thousand government workers from more than thirty government agencies are to receive training on generative artificial intelligence from the Dubai Centre for A.I. Additionally, it intends to improve government services, implement hundreds of trial projects, increase government worker efficiency, and assist more than 20 local and international advanced technology firms.
“We are certain that creating A.I. applications would greatly help Dubai realize its future goal. According to Sheikh Hamdan, the transformational changes in the government, media, economic, health, and education sectors will result from the technological advances we are already witnessing.
The Dubai Centre for A.I.’s objectives and results will be implemented under the supervision of the Dubai Future Foundation, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dubai Media Council, and Dubai Digital Authority in collaboration with the appropriate authorities, with a focus on creating legislation for A.I. applications, luring top global technological solutions, and nurturing domestic talent.
The initiative’s debut is part of carrying out His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s orders to integrate cutting-edge A.I. technologies across various industries. At a compound annual growth rate of 34.3 per cent, the generative A.I. market is predicted to rise from US$10 billion in 2022 to US$110.8 billion by 2030. This is the context in which the Centre is being established.
By 2025, 10% of all data generated will come from generative A.I. Within the next two years; generative A.I. approaches are also anticipated to be used in the healthcare industry to systematically identify more than 30% of new medications and materials.
The Dubai Centre for A.I. will research the ethical and social implications of generative A.I. applications and their alignment with societal and human values in Dubai and worldwide to achieve its three primary pillars. It will also establish regulations on contemporary technology.
Government Use Of Generative A.I.
The Dubai Centre for A.I. will improve government sector performance in a number of ways. For instance, it will employ A.I. to run simulations that examine the alterations and effects of new laws and policies, forecast the outcomes of various scenarios, assess the success of programs, and facilitate complex decision-making.
By anticipating user requirements and preferences, the Center will support the growth of government services. In addition to using data analytic tools to find trends and insights that can aid government organizations in making informed decisions, it will build communication channels to simplify public services. Additionally, generative A.I. will be used to guarantee the provision of superior governmental services catered to the Dubai citizens’ requirements.
The Dubai Centre for A.I. acts as a platform for collaboration between the public, corporate, and academic sectors to create A.I. applications and introduce cutting-edge services and products.
Through promoting collaboration with significant worldwide technology businesses and top academic institutions, the Center’s efforts will strengthen Dubai’s position as a regional leader in A.I. research, development, and innovation.
