The UAE’s Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications Office has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Samsung Gulf Electronics to collaborate on driving artificial intelligence (AI) adoption and development among the nation's youth.[1]

This MoU aligns with the UAE's ambitious AI strategy, aiming to establish the country as a global leader in AI by 2031.

Key initiatives under this agreement include the integration of Samsung's Innovation Campus (SIC) CSR program into the UAE's AI Summer Camp 2024 edition. Additionally, the collaboration will launch the Galaxy AI Pioneers program, a 30-day course for students aged 13-18. This program will provide a comprehensive introduction to AI, machine learning, and Python coding, covering essential AI concepts such as deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and AI robotics.

The online and onsite Galaxy AI Pioneers program combines theoretical learning with hands-on experience. Students will develop applications showcasing their understanding of AI technologies and upon completion, participants will receive a certificate from the UAE Office of AI.

Samsung Innovation Campus, the company's global citizenship program, will provide ICT education to students and youth, covering AI, IoT, Big Data, Coding, and Programming.

Recently, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF), announced a new initiative aimed at training teachers in Dubai on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications.

This initiative, overseen by the Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence in collaboration with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), aligns with the goals of the recently launched Dubai Universal Blueprint for Artificial Intelligence (DUB.AI). It seeks to equip teachers with the needed knowledge to nurture a new generation of learners capable of leveraging technological advancements, including AI.
