Dubai: In the last phase of the Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence’s (DCAI) accelerator program, 30 companies from 13 countries have taken part, and over eight weeks at AREA 2071, these tech firms collaborated on crafting over 300 projects.
It aimed to create innovative AI-driven solutions for more than 100 challenges presented by 33 government entities in Dubai.
DCAI announced that in the next phase of the program, 72 joint projects will be developed and worked on across the program’s two main pillars: the future of government services and the future of the media and communication services sector.
DFF’s initiative provides an innovative model to attract technology companies to work with government agencies to harness AI tools to drive positive change in the Dubai government.
Mr. Saeed Al Falasi, Director of DCAI, observed that the projects selected within the final stage of the program will support all government entities in Dubai in employing AI tools in their future projects and initiatives to achieve the leadership’s vision of the need to keep pace with global technological trends and international best practices in government work.
Mr. Al Falasi stated that, “through this program, Dubai has presented a new global model of partnership between the government and private sectors and those with innovative ideas to anticipate the future uses of AI and employ its tools to enhance the quality of life and develop its future opportunities.”
The DCAI Accelerators Program organized a series of meetings for entrepreneurs participating in the program alongside investors to discuss opportunities to enhance the growth of their businesses and expand into new local, regional, and global markets. They also explored the opportunity to work with government agencies and communicate with experts in various future sectors in the UAE and around the world.
