Dubai: The National Program for Coders, in partnership with Ureed.com and the Meem Foundation, has revealed a joint initiative titled “AI-Forward.”
Ureed.com is the region’s largest talent marketplace, and the Meem Foundation is a philanthropic foundation.
By providing a thorough and free training program in data labeling and annotation, the initiative seeks to empower 100 Emirati women by facilitating their entry into the rapidly developing fields of technology and artificial intelligence (AI).
Participants in the training program will gain useful skills in data labeling and annotation, putting them in a position to succeed in high-demand positions in the tech and AI sectors.
Saqr Binghalib, Executive Director at the UAE’s Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications office, stated that the National Programme for Coders is a hub for the development of digital skills, and it reflects the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. This vision revolves around the development of talents and capabilities as a fundamental element in the UAE’s journey towards success and excellence.
Saqr Binghalib added that through such initiatives, we aim to enhance the empowerment of all members of society to ensure technological progress and enable them through comprehensive programs that keep pace with the latest technological developments.
The “AI-Forward” initiative is designed to unfold over a comprehensive 24-week timeline, organized into three cohorts delivering the same curriculum, quizzes, and classes to ensure a thorough learning experience for all participants and offering several opportunities to accommodate their diverse schedules. Each cohort extends for a duration of 8 weeks.
