Abu Dhabi Creates a Committee to Advance the AI Industry and Passes a New AI Law

Abu Dhabi launches the Advanced Technology Council and Artificial Intelligence


UAE: In an effort to foster investment and research opportunities, as well as to develop and oversee an emerging technology sector, Abu Dhabi has established a new Artificial Intelligence council.


The President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has signed a law creating the Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Technology Council (AIATC) in his capacity as Ruler of Abu Dhabi.


The committee will be in charge of creating and carrying out plans and policies about research, infrastructure, and investments in cutting-edge technology and artificial intelligence in Abu Dhabi.


Additionally, a resolution naming the council’s members was issued by Sheikh Mohamed.


Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, was named Vice Chairman of the AIATC by the Ruler’s resolution, and Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Deputy Ruler of Abu Dhabi, as Chairman.


Additionally, Peng Xiao, Jassem Mohamed Bu Ataba Al Zaabi, Khaldoon Khalifa Al Mubarak, and Faisal Abdulaziz Al Bannai were appointed as members of the AIATC by the resolution.


The AIATC was established because of a strong belief in the role that technology leadership will play in creating the economy of the future.


In order to improve the UAE capital’s standing in the areas of artificial intelligence and cutting-edge technology, the council will create strategies and research initiatives in partnership with regional and international partners.


It is a good fit with the emirate’s plan to establish itself as the global center for partnerships, investments, and talent in the field.


The President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, had a bold vision, and his orders stressing the significance of future-oriented industries are reflected in the founding of the AIATC.


The council will support and guarantee the post-hydrocarbon economy’s continuous growth and prosperity.
