Dubai AI and Web3 Campus Initiates AI Transformation Programme to Amplify Business Capabilities
The Dubai AI and Web3 Campus has rolled out an Artificial Intelligence Transformation Programme aiming to enhance AI capabilities of businesses in Dubai and promote global competitiveness in terms of innovation, talent acquisition, and economic growth. The sector-agnostic corporate accelerator is designed to serve businesses of all sizes across various industries.
The programme places a significant emphasis on C-level education about prevailing industry trends and the integration of the latest AI and technological advancements to maintain a competitive edge. It also aims to build partnerships between businesses, start-ups, and industry leaders to expedite the process of proof-of-concept (POC) creation and facilitate its internal adoption.
Utilising the robust innovation ecosystem of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Dubai’s expansive technological infrastructure, participating entities will gain access to a corporate innovation lab, high-quality hardware and software, and facilities that enable concept creation and prototype testing, all in collaboration with tech industry experts.
Mohammad Alblooshi, CEO of DIFC Innovation Hub, said, “The Artificial Intelligence Transformation Programme is a pioneering initiative by the Dubai AI & Web3 Campus. We look forward to working with corporates in the region to streamline and scale their businesses through adoption of artificial intelligence across different verticals.”
The programme also aims to support start-ups by aiding the incorporation of their technologies through strategic ecosystem partnerships and providing access to specialised licensing and regulatory solutions. The Dubai AI and Web3 Campus will additionally facilitate corporate deal flow and partnerships to foster collaboration between established corporates and emerging start-ups, enhancing a culture of technological advancement.
This launch follows the prior announcement of the Dubai AI and Web3 Campus, housed within the new DIFC Innovation One premises, which provides state-of-the-art physical and digital infrastructure, research and development facilities, and collaborative workspaces to attract, build, and scale firms in the region.
The Campus has begun issuing AI and Web3 licences for activities including Distributed Ledger Technology Services, specialised Artificial Intelligence Research and consultancies, IT infrastructure builders, Technology Research and Development, and Public Networking Services through DIFC.
