A Spotlight on AI and Smart cities

The Chairman of The Internet Society’s Bahrain-Chapter, Ahmed Al Hujairy, has announced his participation as a keynote speaker at the renowned technology conference and exhibition, GITEX 2021, which will be held from October 17 to October 21 at the World Trade Center, Dubai.

“The Kingdom is ready to shift towards smart cities that integrate advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence for several reasons including the existence of an advanced ICT network, fast internet at a reasonable cost, and the citizen’s high awareness of handling modern technologies, in addition to the small geographical area being a conducive factor in implementing the concept of smart cities flexibly and quickly,” says Mr. Al Hujairy.

During the event, he will also highlight the vast and growing uses of AI in the energy industry such as creating and operating smart grids, accurately forecasting citywide production and demand, and crafting better renewable energy solutions and materials.

The Bahrain Technology Companies Society (BTECH) and WorkSmart for Events Management will organise the Bahraini National Pavilion at GITEX 2021 for the 15th consecutive year with the aim of contributing to the development of the ICT sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
