Sultan Al-Jaber stresses the importance of artificial intelligence in addressing “climate change”.

Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and President of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al-Jaber emphasized the need for artificial intelligence research to play a key role in finding economic and practical solutions. Social benefits and addressing global challenges such as the effects of climate change.

This happened during his visit to Mohammed Bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence, the world’s first university for post-graduate courses specializing in artificial intelligence research, in which he was accompanied by the CEO of the “G42” group, Peng Xiao and The. University President and Lecturer, Professor Eric Jing.

Al Jaber said, “The adoption of artificial intelligence applications in various sectors will help the UAE achieve its goals of leveraging advanced technology in diversifying the economy. Expectations point to artificial intelligence solutions coming their way.”

or an estimated $13 trillion in global GDP by 2030, improving the quality of life for millions around the world and supporting the industries of the future.

He added, “As the world witnesses the dawn of a new technological revolution, the Mohammed bin Zayed University for Artificial Intelligence will graduate a group of world-leading experts in artificial intelligence and provide a framework that encourages collaboration between different disciplines, supporting innovation in the UAE.”

He explained, “To create a future energy system characterized by sustainability and efficiency, research is needed on currently developed technologies to ensure improved energy efficiency, reduced emissions and consumption.”

or in achieving simultaneous economic and social development by mitigating the consequences of climate change ».

He said, “Advancement and development of modern technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analysis and robotics will reduce carbon emissions by improving the ability to measure and reduce energy consumption and gas emissions, especially in high-intensity sectors.”

The visit saw a presentation of research on decarbonisation of artificial intelligence systems, and machine learning methods to save energy through language models and machine learning systems, to improve solar energy production, and urban heat mapping to improve climate. samples, prompt diagnosis of malaria and assessment of patient status.

Collaborative project

Dr. Sultan Al Jaber met key researchers from both the Mohammed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence and the Foundation Institute for Artificial Intelligence, who briefed him on the most important research focusing on priority areas for the UAE. The fields of environment, infrastructure and health are education and the development of large linguistic models, especially in Arabic.

During his visit to the Mohammed Bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence, Al Jaber also discussed a joint project with IBM that aims to develop a data system to identify urban areas in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Sees higher temperatures, which directly influence the formulation and implementation of climate and sustainability policies.

By analyzing large amounts of data using artificial intelligence, the system benefits from measuring greenhouse gas emission levels and identifying climate trends and patterns that can provide valuable insights and information to scientists and policy makers.
