We stand on the cusp of a revolution in technology, where human ingenuity and the power of AI will help us solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges with unprecedented speed, scale, and precision. Since the issuance of the National Strategy for AI 2031, the UAE has consistently achieved milestones in the field of artificial intelligence. The economic potential of AI for the country is substantial, with forecasts indicating a potential contribution of up to 13.6% to the UAE's GDP by 2030.  The UAE Digital Economy Strategy aims to double the digital economy's contribution to the country's non-oil GDP from 11.7% to over 20% by 2031.

The era of GenAI-driven disruption has prompted technology leaders to reassess AI's role, making it a priority for governments and organizations to adopt an "AI Everywhere" mindset.

Generative AI, especially at its current stage of development, stands to accelerate the realization of the National Strategy's objectives.

Keeping this in mind, the AI Convergence is taking place on 24 - 25 April 2024 in Abu Dhabi and will cover the upcoming trends and challenges faced in the industry delivered by top experts in the field of AI. The UAE's stride toward AI commercialization, including ecosystem development and strategic investments, position it as a frontrunner in the AI landscape.
