The Abu Dhabi Government revealed its data and AI projects at GITEX Global 2023.
Major launches include Smart AI Vehicle Inspection by DMT and “Unlocking Data for the Greater Good” initiative by SCAD. The launch of Insights and Foresights Platform (IFP 2.0) by SCAD is another significant development. Additionally, the Department of Energy (DoE) introduced its third phase of the heatmap project. This project uses advanced three-dimensional techniques to measure water and electricity consumption intensity in buildings.
SCAD’s “Unlocking the Potential of Data for the Greater Good” project aims to develop solutions to establish a unified virtual database. This database enhances the approach of data governance and integration in a secure environment. Thus, it allows decision-makers from the government to access data repositories from various sectors and sources. The project also enables ensuring confidentiality and privacy of data, thereby, harnessing the latest artificial intelligence techniques for analysis and providing reliable proactive insights.
SCAD also announced the launch of the second version of Insights and Foresights Platform (IFP 2.0). This release incorporates advanced features and enhancements to meet user requirements: for example, customizing platform settings to generate statistical comparisons in addition to creating interactive dashboards and issuing analytical reports based on geospatial data. Furthermore, the enhanced AI-based platform relies on cutting-edge artificial intelligence techniques to offer timely nowcasts and forecasts.
Meanwhile, DMT’s Smart AI Vehicle Inspection project harnesses AI and advanced technologies to conduct thorough vehicle inspections. Furthermore, the Department of Energy launched the third phase of a 3D energy and water-use intensity heatmap system, improving data analysis and consumer awareness.
His Excellency Eng. Ahmed Mohammed Al Rumaithi, undersecretary of the Department of Energy, said: “This project reflects the Department’s continued commitment to pioneering digital government initiatives that aim to enhance efficiency in energy use.”
The Family Development Foundation (FDF) introduced the Digital Social Observer system for social issue monitoring. Whilst, Abu Dhabi Social Support Authority (ADSSA) launched an initiative to enhance the customer experience for supporting dependent national families.
The Abu Dhabi Chamber also unveiled Chamber ChatGPT, an AI tool for natural language interactions.
