The Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DCAI) has announced the formation of special taskforces within 30 government entities in Dubai to harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and transform government operations and services.
The taskforces, launched under the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation, were announced at the first meeting convened by the DCAI.
DCAI was introduced to enhance the work of the Dubai government and reinforce its position as a global leader in adopting cutting-edge technology. The task forces will play a pivotal role in supporting the implementation of various initiatives and projects launched by the DCAI, ensuring collaboration and knowledge-sharing between the entities and cooperation with local and global partners in the private sector.
The meeting also focused on establishing mechanisms to help DCAI forge partnerships with both public and private organizations to explore future opportunities, effectively utilize AI, and enhance government services.
Saeed Al Falasi, Director of the Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence, said, “The center will create taskforces comprising national talent from different government entities in Dubai. These are talents who possess the best AI skills and tools and who will use their expertise to enhance the performance of various entities by developing various applications based on AI.”
“These teams will study ideas and projects that government entities will develop in cooperation with the center. They will also explore flexible and appropriate regulatory frameworks and policies for using AI in the government sector in line with current and future needs,” he added.
The Dubai Future Foundation, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, Dubai Media Council and Dubai Digital Authority will jointly oversee the implementation of DCAI’s goals and outcomes in cooperation with relevant authorities.
The generative AI sector is expected to grow from $10 billion in 2022 to $110.8 billion by 2030, with a 34.3% compound annual growth rate.
