The UAE Artificial Intelligence strategy was launched to boost government performance, the rate of accomplishing achievements. The Vice President has set out a new artificial intelligence drive that will one day affect “all our services, sectors and future infrastructure”.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, also the Ruler of Dubai, announced the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, a major initiative within the UAE Centennial 2070 objectives.
The strategy will create a highly productive innovative environment by investing in advanced technologies and AI tools that will be implemented in all fields of work.
Launching the strategy, Shaikh Mohammed said: “The UAE Centennial begins now, with the launch of massive projects such as the AI strategy to set up the basis for the coming phase. This strategy represents the post-smart government phase, and it will be relied on by various future services, sectors and infrastructure projects.”
The UAE is one of the most prepared countries in the region to adopt AI technology because the government has already built a thorough technology infrastructure over the past two decades. The UAE was the first country in the region to adopt e-government services which quickly transformed into a Smart Government system in 2013. This was also a first in the region and was part of Sheikh Mohammed’s vision to provide the country with the highest and most efficient services and quality of life.
