Sharjah -Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park hosted a workshop on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), delivered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The “AI Strategies for Growth” workshop, which took place on Sunday on the 19th of Sep at the park, was attended by over 50 senior technology officers, technical experts and technology enthusiasts from Sharjah government departments. The audience learned how organizations can use AI and ML to unlock new insights and value from data to enhance customer experiences, improve productivity and drive business success. They also learned about the ways that cloud computing services and solutions from AWS can help Sharjah government organizations to improve government performance, accelerate innovation, and better serve citizens.
Speaking about the workshop, His Excellency Hussain Al Mahmoudi, CEO of the Sharjah Research, Technology, and Innovation Park, said, "We are delighted to organize these workshops and collaborate with a global company like Amazon Web Services so we can learn from their expertise about artificial intelligence and the ways that cloud computing can benefit government organizations to innovate at a faster rate to better serve citizens.”
This workshop comes as part of the continued efforts by the government institutions in Sharjah to achieve the vision of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of the UAE Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, to link the efforts of private sector institutions, government bodies and academic institutions to support applied scientific and technological research. Such initiatives help build a knowledge economy that will improve the quality of life in Sharjah and encourage all sectors to develop and innovate. They also help set the stage on which the future services, sectors and infrastructure will be built to support the country to meet the vision of the UAE Centennial Plan. This long-term plan seeks to make the UAE the best in the world in all fields. The UAE government is committed to being the first in the world to comprehensively invest in artificial intelligence across all sectors, adopting the latest technologies and tools of artificial intelligence and applying them in various fields of work with high-level efficiency.
AWS had recently announced that it will open data centers in the UAE in the first half of 2022, giving organizations of all sizes in the UAE more choice and flexibility to leverage advanced technologies from the world’s leading cloud.
