DUBAI, 13th April, 2018 (WAM) — Artificial Intelligence, AI, will have a significant impact on humanity, comparable to the importance of electricity, said Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence.

Al Olama made his statement during a seminar on scientific research and technological development in the Arab world, as part of the FIKR 16 Conference, which concluded on Thursday.


Al Olama highlighted the initiative launched last November by the UAE, to train one million young Arabs on coding.

“As part of the initiative, we aim to train 100,000 AI coders, to enable them to create the future,” he added.
