Dubai is set to host the first edition of World AI Show in the wake of the ‘Smart Dubai Government' initiative.
The conference is gearing up for the launch of the first leg of the series in the ‘happiest city on the planet’, before moving on to Singapore, Mumbai, and Paris. The event will be taking place on April 11-12, 2018 at The Address Dubai Mall.
UAE has already been ahead in the global AI race especially when it announced the appointment of a dedicated ministry for AI, and with Dubai Police implementing a fully functional robot police – all this while the rest of the world is trying to play catch-up.
UAE’s tech ecosystem hosts a number of emerging AI startups and digital transformative technologies. The country’s market cap for AI is set to touch the $50 billion mark by 2025.
Moreover, Nikhil Jain, cofounder of AI-based virtual identity creator ‘ObEN’, has said that “the show is a much needed platform as it is addressing the technology of the future, today. We need a detailed understanding of what constitutes an AI and the people need to know that too, for our businesses to thrive”.
The show is also being attended by notable industry leaders, such as Dr. Sohail Munir, who serves as an advisor for Emerging Technologies and Digital Transformation in the ‘Smart Dubai Government’ initiative. Some of the other notable delegates and speakers attending the event are Hans Christensen, Director for Dtec, UAE; Dr. Bernd Van Linder, CEO of the Commerical Bank of Dubai, UAE; Sally Eaves, Speaker and Researcher of the Forbes Technology Council, UK; Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO of the Dubai Investment Development Agency and many others.
The World AI Show will also feature a product showcase at a dedicated exhibition venue to display the latest innovations in AI and secure the required assistance to propel their business forward.
