The programme will consist of six courses taught by instructors from academic institutions, executives from global multinational corporations, and university staff. It will also encourage more AI involvement among government, business, and the scientific community to expedite the development of future sectors in the UAE while supporting its long-term ambition to become a worldwide AI leader.
