The UAE continues to put itself at the forefront of AI development with their previous announcement of a dedicated ministry for AI, and with Dubai Police implementing a fully functional robot police, and now with hosting the first edition of the World AI Show.

Next month at The Address Dubai Mall, Dubai will host the first edition of the World AI Show.

Organised by Trescon, a business events company, the show will showcase the latest in artificial intelligence a before moving on to Singapore, Mumbai, and then Paris.

The show arrives as Dubai incubated emerging AI startups and digital transformative technologies. Which isn’t a surprise with the country’s market cap for AI set to reach $50 billion by 2025.

The major factor behind the World AI Show series is to bring the global thought leaders for AI under one roof, to discuss everything surrounding the development and wide-scale implementation of AI across key verticals. With the growth of AI gaining momentum the ethical concerns is often ignored.

“The concept of AI scares the common man because his knowledge about it is low. We could either wait for the full-scale global incorporation of this technology before educating the masses, or we can skip to the front of the line and prepare the people for the inevitable,” said Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post, and show speaker.

Organisers said “the show is set to form a precedent for the future, which is the inevitable foray of AI into every sector by 2030. The usage of this technology has already found its way into the healthcare, automotive and defence sectors across the world.”

Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, said “We are conducting this show on a global scale because we saw a visible absence of platforms that discuss futuristic technology and their possible business opportunities. The advent of AI started with automation and is no longer a pipe dream! How can a business of tomorrow thrive unless we speak about it and address all of its concerns, today,” he went on to mention that the show was a requirement in the untapped market, and was seeing systematic growth in particular sectors.
