Business and technology hub and member of TECOM Group, Dubai Internet City (DIC) will soon be home to Intel’s newest artificial intelligence (AI) software R&D centre.

The announcement was made by DIC at its stand at the ongoing Gitex Global 2022

Said to be the first of its kind in the GCC, the centre will help to advance the capabilities of Intel’s leading AI software solutions.

Ammar Al Malik, executive vice president Commercial Leasing at TECOM Group, who commented on behalf of DIC, said: “Dubai’s integrated business ecosystem and favourable economic climate have attracted the world’s largest companies whose innovations and insights have strengthened digital transformation not only in our emirate, but also the wider region. Advanced technologies like artificial intelligence are defining the future of all sectors, from manufacturing to education, and establishing a robust tech ecosystem to navigate this emerging and ever-evolving space gives Dubai a competitive edge beneficial to businesses, talent and economic growth alike.

“For more than 20 years, DIC has been integral to this ambition, fostering a dynamic community of global MNEs, SMEs and startups in one location. We are delighted that an industry leader like Intel is inaugurating an AI software R&D Center in our community, cementing Dubai’s position as a tech hub. Their addition reflects the enduring confidence of the world’s largest technology companies in Dubai as the place to do business and innovate.”

Taha Khalifa, Intel Corporation, Middle East GM, said, “As a global technology leader, and long-time trusted technology advisor in the Middle East region, Intel is pleased to expand its footprint in the UAE through the AI software R&D centre.  The launch of the centre not only represents a milestone in Intel’s strategy to accelerate and align with digital transformation and economic diversification objectives but is also a strong opportunity to collaborate across the region’s talented and growing technology ecosystem to help drive further AI innovation to fuel global solutions for many segments including healthcare, transportation and public safety.”
