In October 2017, the UAE has released the first national Artificial intelligence (AI) strategy recognized as the first strategy of this caliber in the region and the world. The strategy is meant to highlight the framework of the first project in the UAE centennial 2071 and an initial step in 2021 roadmaps. The AI initiative in the UAE is aimed at focusing on revolutionizing technology, education, space, health, energy, water, environment, transport and traffic sectors, amongst others, through building proficient, productive, cost-effective and innovative solutions. The results achieved will streamline an innovative industrial arm of the future in placing the UAE as a global industrial hub, and building the proper economic, technical and scientific communities and groundwork that will support this vision. How important it is to build futuristic research and development industrial communities to support this vision? What are the main criteria that should be set in place to achieve successful outcomes? This discussion is a genuine and collective conversation with His Excellency Omar Sultan Al Olama, the Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence and a Member of the Board of Trustees of Dubai Future Foundation and the Deputy Managing Director of the Foundation to capture his vision on the execution of the UAE AI strategy and the resonance of his endeavors to build a pathway for the future of industry and technology in UAE.
