The Strategy for AI in Qatar and How They Lead in it

Qatar is a shining example in the region’s AI path, having accomplished enormous milestones while establishing many potentials. The National AI Strategy was launched in 2019 and fully acknowledged AI’s important role in shaping the 21st century. An ecosystem that develops as a result of an environment that promotes AI innovation has been actively promoted by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). Data speaks faster than words, and 17.4% annual growth is predicted, pushing Qatar’s AI industry to an estimated $58.8 million by 2026. 

Today, we will discuss how Qatar is leading worldwide in AI development and what’s the reason behind this. So let’s get started. 

Delivering Unparalleled Experiences

Hukoomi was one of the first government departments in the region to use Azure OpenAI Service and GPT, delivering powerful AI models that transform citizen experiences while enhancing value results. Expanding upon its success in using cloud, artificial intelligence, and data to provide a perfect FIFA World Cup expertise, the Hayya went beyond its vital role in the match to help the nation’s transformation into a worldwide center for tourism and events. 

The Qatar Foundation developed BOTania, a multilingual chatbot, using Microsoft Azure AI Cognitive Services. In a similar vein, Invest Qatar powers AI with AI.SHA is the company’s first AI-powered chatbot designed to provide investors with unique local and global experiences.

Empowering Better Decisions

The Ministry of Labor in Qatar established a model for every government department that would provide them access to labor-market data to help make decisions about sustainable development because of the significant social, commercial, and economic effects of artificial intelligence.

Advancing Sustainability

Microsoft supports Expo2023 Doha as the Exclusive Technology Partner in line with the Qatar National Climate Change and Environment Planning, which highlights the need for an equilibrium between social development, economic growth, and preservation of the environment. We are showcasing the latest information and AI innovations to help groups in Qatar make data-driven decisions to set and achieve their own climate goals while encouraging business growth and innovation.
