Special taskforces within 30 government entities in Dubai have been formed to help leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance government operations and services.

Set up under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation, the taskforces were announced at a meeting held by the Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Based at AREA 2071 at Emirates Towers in Dubai, the Dubai Centre for AI was launched to assist government entities in deploying future technologies across key sectors.

Taskforce targets

The taskforces will play a key role in supporting the implementation of various initiatives and projects launched by the centre, ensuring collaboration and knowledge-sharing between the entities, as well as cooperation with local and global partners in the private sector.

During the meeting, attendees were briefed on the centre’s objectives and focus for the near future. Discussions focused on identifying key sectors that will benefit from the application of AI, as well as determining those technologies with the most potential to enhance government performance.

The focus was also on establishing mechanisms to help Dubai Centre for AI forge partnerships with both public and private organisations to explore future opportunities, effectively utilise AI, and enhance government services.

Dubai Centre for AI to empower national talent

Saeed Al Falasi, Director of Dubai Centre for AI, said: “The centre 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 centre. They will also explore flexible and appropriate regulatory frameworks and policies for the uses of AI in the government sector in line with current and future needs.”

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.

They will focus on developing legislation related to AI applications, implementing the centre’s plans, while attracting top global technological solutions and national talents.
