Dr. Anas Al-Najdawi, Director of the University of Abu Dhabi in Dubai and Digital Business Consultant, on Monday 9 of January confirmed that the United Arab Emirates has become a leader in artificial intelligence in the region, especially since it was the first Arab country to allocate a ministry for artificial intelligence.
In a statement to 24 News, Al-Najdawi pointed out that the UAE employs artificial intelligence in many fields, most notably healthcare, such as preventing diseases, examining patients with similar symptoms in different regions, monitoring similar patterns through the analysis of charts, warnings about pandemics, and in the analysis of X-rays and medical images, which increased the efficiency of healthcare services in public safety.
Al-Najdawi spoke about the use of artificial intelligence in security services to identify patterns, places, and times of potential crimes, and use this data to deploy police patrols, for example, to raise the accuracy of security work and promote respect for the law.
He explained that the UAE has also been able to employ artificial intelligence in public transportation to reduce traffic congestion, in traffic services to improve them by monitoring accidents using computer vision, and by using chatbots in government entities to facilitate and improve payment mechanisms.
Al-Najdawi pointed to the importance of using artificial intelligence in resource and energy management, which has enhanced and improved their supply, and their use in a safe manner, in addition to employing it in education by improving the absorption of schools and universities of these modern specialisations and using the latest artificial intelligence models to develop the efficiency of education and anticipate the needs of the labour market in the future.
On the other hand, the UAE has become a leader in generative artificial intelligence, by taking the initiative to invest in it, and innovating programs that support Arabic, such as the "JES" application, which is a competitor to "ChatGPT", and other programs, to support Arabic content, whether text, video, or audio, using artificial intelligence techniques. The UAE's leadership in artificial intelligence is likely to continue to grow in the years. The country has the resources, commitment, and vision, to become a global leader in this field.
