Dubai: Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deputy Managing Director of the Dubai Future Foundation, highlighted that the UAE can develop skills and capabilities to promote technologies and harness them to build a safe and bright future for next generations. This took place on the sidelines of the KNOW session, presented by Al Olama as part of the 2nd ‘Pioneer Series’ initiative. The initiative is organised by the Dubai Future Academy, an initiative of Dubai Future Foundation, throughout the holy month of Ramadan, at the Academy’s headquarters.

The meeting was attended by Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of Dubai Future Accelerators, and several officials from public and private organisations and departments.

During the meeting, Al Olama reviewed key challenges facing future technologies and the solutions to these challenges, including the challenges facing the development of digital currencies, robots, self-driving cars and fast transport such as the Hyperloop. “In finding solutions to these challenges, we create new sectors and industries that cause a great economic and social return to society and the country. Individuals who find solutions to these challenges around the world are just like you,” said Al Olama.

His Excellency concluded the session with a panel discussion with the audience, where he received their questions and inquiries and shared his experiences in Artificial Intelligence and technological development. He also listened to their experiences in technological development in various sectors.

During the holy month of Ramadan, the ‘Pioneer Series’ hosted a group of VIP speakers, including ministers, officials and specialists in various fields, to share knowledge and promote community awareness through the Future Council, which reviews the various aspects of the future and innovative initiatives. This reflects the vision of the Dubai Future Academy to be an informational forum for Future makers, aiming to equip future leaders with the skills needed to keep abreast of accelerated developments.
