More than 1,000 artificial intelligence experts and policymakers will gather this week in Dubai to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by AI and its adoption across various sectors.

The “AI Retreat”, which will take place on June 11 at the Museum of the Future, is organized by the Dubai Center for Artificial Intelligence in collaboration with the National Program for Artificial Intelligence.

This is the first event under the Dubai Universal Plan for Artificial Intelligence (DUB.AI), announced in April, as part of efforts to accelerate the adoption of AI in the emirate .

The retreat will host key sessions, panel discussions, specialist workshops and high-level panel discussions focused on four main themes, including funding and finance, infrastructure, data enablement and talent development.

The gathering aims to consolidate Dubai’s position as a global AI hub and facilitate direct and open communication between leaders and the public and private sectors, who will share goals, ideas, best practices and success stories to inspire progress in this area.

In April, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, launched DUB.AI, which aims to unleash the power of technology to improve quality of life.

The plan aims to provide an optimal ecosystem for AI companies and global talents by providing a business-friendly environment.

DUB.AI seeks to accelerate the adoption of AI applications, which will support the objectives of Dubai Economic Agenda D33 by contributing AED 100 billion annually to Dubai’s economy by boosting the digital economy and by increasing productivity by 50%.
