Abu Dhabi launches AI lab to improve gov’t services


Abu Dhabi Digital Authority (ADDA) has launched an Artificial Intelligence Lab, a new initiative which will provide a dedicated platform to develop innovative digital solutions using AI and machine learning.



The lab will apply these solutions to improve the efficiency in services and contribute to excellence in government performance, a statement said.

The AI lab forms part of ADDA’s strategy to employ cutting-edge technology applications in developing innovative digital solutions for various government services, it added.

The lab offers high-performance computing abilities and has been made available for all Abu Dhabi government entities as a service.

ADDA said it has trained more than 70 Abu Dhabi government employees on AI technologies and has already adopted plans to train 120 employees more over the next two months.

The initiative was launched following an agreement signed between ADDA and IBM in March, where the parties have agreed to initiate key areas of cooperation in several fields.

Dr Rauda Al Saadi, director general of ADDA, said that launching the lab is a major step forward in its efforts to leverage AI technologies in advancing digital government services that meet the needs of people and businesses, especially in key sectors such as housing, education, health, and work and leisure.

She added:



“The Artificial Intelligence Lab will serve as an integrated platform for learning, analysis and exchange of expertise and knowledge in various fields of AI in line with the Emirate’s commitment to invest in human capital and continuously develop the skills and capabilities of government staff.”
