Artelligence: AI's growth depends on adoption of IoT, Big Data
Artificial Intelligence has cemented itself as a key enabler technology in the future of smart cities. But its growth in the UAE and the region will be dependent on an ecosystem that welcomes several other technologies alongside it.
Speaking at the Artelligence 2021 forum, Dr. Saeed Al Dhaheri, member of the Global Future Council on Virtual and Augmented Reality, World Economic Forum, shared how the UAE is working towards a future that is built on innovation.
“AI is going to play a big role in social services, such as healthcare, education, transportation, public safety and consumer behavior,” he said. “We use AI without even being aware of it.”
Already, he said that there are several cases of AI being successfully used in various industries, including healthcare.
“Medical image identification is using AI to check if patients are suffering from cancer. AI today has achieved an accuracy of 99 per cent in correctly diagnosing women with breast cancer, better than any other screening methods. AI will also bring inclusion in terms of areas where there is a shortage of medical staff,” Al Dhaheri said.
