I have been residing in Abu Dhabi, UAE, with my family for over seven months now and have discovered that this place is truly extraordinary.
Beyond the splendid weather, hospitable locals, and world-class attractions, the UAE is making an impressive mark on the global tech and AI stage.
From Technology Innovation Institute releasing Falcon LLM, which soared to the top of Hugging Face charts, to the cutting-edge research emerging from MBZUAI (Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence), driverless taxis and buses on Yas Island, Face ID entry and payment at Ferrari World, or DIFC and Hub71 driving AI startups - the impact is felt everywhere.
AI is poised to revolutionise every industry in the MENA region, particularly in the UAE. As such, I wanted to create something that combines my passion for technology and my burgeoning affection for the UAE.
I present to you “AI in the UAE.” 🇦🇪
Each week, I will explore a different aspect of AI, ranging from hospitality and healthcare to smart cities and marine research, all while introducing you to some astonishing locations, attractions and people in the UAE.
Our first episode is AI in hotels, recorded at the lovely Four Seasons Resort in Dubai. Check it out below 👇
