Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that it had entered the third phase of its long-term partnership with OpenAI, giving developers and organizations across industries access to the best AI infrastructure, models, and toolchain with Azure to build and run their applications. At the upcoming event, Microsoft will demonstrate the unprecedented potential that this collaboration offers UAE organizations, showcasing practical use cases for how local businesses can leverage this technology to drive growth and success.
Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE, said that Microsoft’s advancements in AI are grounded in, and consistent with, the company’s mission to help every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. “AI is one of the defining technologies of our time, and we are optimistic about what it can and will do for people, industry, and society. It’s the ultimate amplifier, freeing up time for people everywhere to engage in more creative and fulfilling work,” he said. “In the UAE, this transformative technology is unlocking exceptional potential to support the country’s economic diversification efforts and drive tremendous growth of the digital economy. And it’s this potential that we aim to showcase to our valued customers and partners during this exclusive event.”
Attendees at the event will discover how large AI models are transforming industries and creating business impact. Esteemed speakers, including H.E. Eng.
