UAE Minister HE Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan says that human values are needed to make the transition to Artificial Intelligence more inclusive and less disruptive for everyone.

Speaking at the Machines Can See Global Summit 2024 at Dubai’s Museum of the Future this week, HH Sheikh Nahyan says that creative approaches to innovation and technology development are crucial to our shared, continued economic growth and societal success.

“We must always be concerned for the welfare of all human beings and be willing to take action to see that everyone has a positive future and a high quality of life. We witness that concern acted upon daily here in the UAE, which looks forward to a future where successful economies around the globe are human economies that incorporate human values and needs into how growth and progress are achieved. Under the UAE’s wise leadership, the nation acts on the conviction that tolerance and human fraternity must shape technological innovation,” says Nahyan.

One of the most prominent events for AI, Machine Learning (ML), and Computer Vision (CV), the Summit was organised in collaboration with the UAE’s Ministry of Artificial Intelligence.

According to Nahyan, AI presents ethical and moral questions that demands attention and concern.

“Our ability as humans to achieve the benefits of AI and machine learning while avoiding potential pitfalls will require consideration and support in at least three areas, including assessment of the human desirability of the design choices, regulations to ensure responsible adoption and application, and global cooperation to address both the opportunities and challenges embedded in the technology. The exponential growth of applied Generative AI over the past 18 months drives innovations, creating new markets, new industries, and even a new society. The collective quest to achieve these breakthroughs will improve the quality of life for us all, and it is both exciting and inspiring. However, we must remain aware of our work’s ethical and moral dimensions as innovations affect the economy and society with unforeseen and unintended consequences when implementing new technology,” says Nahyan.

According to Nayhan, tolerance and shared human values are the key to effectively addressing all three of these requirements and to helping realise AI’s economic and social benefits.

“We regularly review and refine the laws and regulations needed to ensure that technology does not outpace our ability to manage it. We collaborate with others around the world for a future of peace and prosperity for all. We are committed to keeping the UAE a model environment for innovators, enabling them to succeed. We promote research and continued dialogue about the relationship between human values and technology and how to ensure those values are preserved,” says Nahyan.

Commenting on the role of AI in the future of the UAE, Minister of State for AI H.E. Omar Sultan Al Olama says that the country is advancing towards its visionary goal of becoming a global leader in AI by 2031.

“We have a strategic focus on fostering groundbreaking advancements and unlocking a plethora of transformative opportunities across economic, educational, and societal realms. This will catalyse unprecedented growth for its citizens, governmental entities, and businesses. The nation aims to significantly expand its economic footprint on the global stage, positioning itself as a formidable force in key domains of strategic importance by harnessing the power of AI-driven solutions,” says Al Olama.
