The two UAE based firms said that the agreement would help to fast track new developments in the sector.

“Our partnership with MBZUAI will accelerate the development of AI technologies and create powerful synergies for both organisations to push the frontiers of knowledge for the benefit of science, society, the economy and the world. Artificial Intelligence is a national priority and is at the core of the cutting-edge research at TII’s seven initial dedicated research centres, which are all working towards technological breakthroughs in their respective fields of quantum, autonomous robotics, cryptography, advanced materials, digital security, directed energy and secure systems,” said H.E. Faisal Al Bannai, Secretary General of the ATRC.

MBZUAI and TII will work closely to establish a collaborative framework that will enable joint fundamental and applied research in several key domains of AI including neuromorphic computing, UAV research and development, design and development of autonomous vehicles and bio-inspired robotics. MBZUAI and TII aim to build a strategic partnership to achieve research excellence in AI and support Abu Dhabi’s efforts to build and sustain an AI-based knowledge economy.

“Advancing the development of Artificial Intelligence and unlocking the full potential of this extraordinary technology will require cooperation that spans across industries and geographic borders. MBZUAI is firmly committed to forming strategic partnerships with leaders in their respective fields, and the collaboration with TII will enable the AI community as well as our students to gain access to a wide range of resources and expertise in the field of AI, and will provide opportunities for advanced research that will undoubtedly benefit industries, businesses and society in the UAE, and across the world,” said Professor Eric Xing, President of MBZUAI.
