Artificial Intelligence: Empowering the Next Generation of Emiratis

Dell EMC Senior Vice President, Mohammed Amin, signs MoU with Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Omar bin Sultan Al Olama.

Now is the time to give the younger generation the right tools and skillsets to prepare them for the jobs of the future.

Dell EMC is pleased to announce that we have signed a strategic partnership between Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence and our very own Mohammed Amin, Senior Vice President, Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Dell EMC, to train 500 Emirati students under a specialized AI programme scheduled to run for 3 years. The programme is expected to cater to 120 students each year.

This agreement aims at bridging the skills gap in the technology sector and supporting the youth in unlocking their potential to meet the challenges of the future in this rapidly evolving economy. Dell EMC will help these next generation of IT professionals play a pivotal role in improving the efficiency of government organizations by 80%, and achieve a cost reduction of up to 45%, equivalent to millions of dollars.

“Technology plays a significant role in ensuring our students are future-ready and capable of shaping the digital Middle East. Shifting trends and evolving smart technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and data science demand investment in development of skills. Collaboration between the IT sector and the academic community will help our youth realize their full potential which is a step closer to achieving our vision of building a better world,” said Amin.

This agreement supports the objectives of the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, by enabling and empowering young Emiratis to develop their skills in technology in collaboration with a number of leading private sector organizations.

Students will gain first-hand experience across the organization’s various departments and will be invited to attend major events, such as GITEX Technology Week. In addition, Dell EMC will be the first to appoint an ambassador for AI, under this agreement.

We are proud to be investing in the minds that will shape our future and look forward to welcoming them.
