Over the next three years, the UAE aims to empower over one million individuals to proficiently utilize artificial intelligence (AI), according to the country's AI minister, Omar Sultan Al Olama. A series of initiatives are being implemented in stages to reach this objective. One pivotal initiative is the establishment of an AI campus, designed for companies, professionals, and stakeholders, which kicked off at the DIFC and is set to expand. Al Olama highlighted that this campus will evolve into the world's largest AI-focused practice. The initiative aligns with Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's ambitious plan to teach a million people to effectively use AI tools within three years. Additionally, 22 chief AI officers have been appointed across various Dubai government entities to accelerate AI adoption and translate the government's vision into reality. These officers underwent a stringent selection process to ensure they are well-equipped to deploy AI technology and implement the government's vision. Al Olama emphasized that investing in AI is essential, not a luxury, and highlighted the technology's critical role in sectors like healthcare, where AI is transforming emergency response and patient care.
