02 Sep 2019

King Salman has issued a decree to establish an artificial intelligence (AI) centre in the kingdom to drive innovation and digital transformation, according to Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Abdullah Al-Sawaha.

The royal decree sets out the goal of establishing the National Centre for Artificial Intelligence and an organisation called the National Data Management Office, which will be linked to the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority, reported Arab News.

The establishment of the centre is in line with the objectives of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 programme, and will help develop performance efficiency through the applications of AI and big data, Mr Al-Sawaha said.

He said that AI would enhance productivity, boost decision-making processes across all sectors, render services provided to Saudi citizens more innovative, and open new horizons to stimulate entrepreneurship and support young people.
