As 20 melhores universidades de IA formam a primeira turma de Ph.D.

101 formandos impulsionam o ecossistema de IA dos Emirados Árabes Unidos com avanços em pesquisa, desenvolvimento e aplicações comerciais – criando um centro tecnológico de IA do Sul Global

ABU DHABI, Emirados Árabes Unidos, June 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sua Alteza Xeque Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Príncipe Herdeiro de Abu Dhabi e Presidente do Conselho Executivo de Abu Dhabi, participou da cerimônia de formatura de 2024 da Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) em 6 de junho, na qual foram diplomados 101 alunos de 22 países, que receberam títulos de pós-graduação nas principais áreas de IA, incluindo visão computacional (CV), aprendizado de máquina (ML) e processamento de linguagem natural (NLP).

O evento também contou com a presença de Sua Excelência o Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Ministro da Indústria e Tecnologia Avançada dos Emirados Árabes Unidos e Presidente Fundador do Conselho de Administração da MBZUAI, além de outras autoridades.

“Antes de muitos outros países reconhecerem seu potencial, as políticas lideradas pelo governo incentivaram a expansão da IA nos Emirados Árabes Unidos”, disse o Dr. Al Jaber. “Essas políticas promoveram o sucesso de empresas como a G42 e grandes modelos de linguagem como a Falcon. Consequentemente, esse pequeno país está criando um ecossistema de alto nível para talentos e empreendedorismo em IA. Estamos atraindo grandes investimentos de proeminentes empresas de tecnologia, como a Microsoft, e emergindo como um importante centro de inovação e aplicação de IA.”

O Dr. Al Jaber observou que o crescimento da IA é uma das três megatendências que moldam o futuro, juntamente com o ritmo acelerado da transição energética e a ascensão dos mercados emergentes e do Sul Global: “A crescente experiência da turma de 2024 será fundamental para solucionar alguns dos desafios mais urgentes do mundo. Na verdade, se quisermos atingir as metas ambiciosas do histórico Consenso dos Emirados Árabes Unidos, acordado na COP28 em dezembro em Dubai, a IA deve ter um papel crítico.”

A terceira e maior formatura da MBZUAI celebrou o primeiro Ph.D. da universidade em ML, além de mestres em ML (55), CV (28) e PNL (12), contando com alunos provenientes de países como Emirados Árabes Unidos, Canadá, Reino Unido, França, Índia, Vietnã, Paquistão, Etiópia e Sri Lanka.

O presidente da MBZUAI e professor universitário, Eric Xing, disse: “A turma de 2024 da MBZUAI é composta pelos futuros líderes de tecnologia, inovação e criatividade, e está preparada para aceitar a responsabilidade inerente à administração de algo tão poderoso e transformador. Eles nos deixam com o conhecimento, as habilidades e uma profunda compreensão da oportunidade que têm diante de si – a chance de moldar um futuro em que a IA sirva à humanidade com compaixão e padrões éticos inabaláveis – estão prontos para enfrentar os maiores desafios do mundo atual.”

Cinco anos depois de sua criação, a MBZUAI é hoje reconhecida como uma das 100 melhores universidades do mundo em ciência da computação e está classificada entre as 20 melhores por suas especializações em IA, CV, ML, PNL e robótica (CSRankings).

SALAM MEETS WITH IRAQI INVESTMENT AUTHORITY DELEGATION: LEBANON HAS A GEOPOLITICAL INTEREST IN REACTIVATING OIL PIPELINES WITH IRAQ


Caretaker Minister of Economy and Trade, Amin Salam, in his capacity as head of the joint Iraqi-Lebanese committee from the Lebanese side, held a lengthy meeting at his ministerial office today with the head of the National Investment Authority of the Republic of Iraq, Dr. Haider Muhammad Makkiya, and his accompanying delegation, which included engineers from the Oil Pipelines Company and specials in tele-communications, information technology and legal advisors.

The meeting was devoted to discussing the project to rehabilitate the existing oil pipelines between Syria and Lebanon, with investment funding by the Iraqi side while safeguarding the sovereignty of both countries and working on extending an Arab optical fiber communications network.

Makkiya briefed Salam on PM Mikati’s encouragement of this step, requesting the support of the Ministry of Economy in following up on this file because of its strategic economic benefit for Lebanon and the region in the future, especially with the Republic of Iraq’s c
onstant tendency to stand by Lebanon and help in its renaissance.

He also considered that for this project to succeed, the Lebanese government and Parliament must work to issue the necessary laws and decrees to allow the Iraqi Authority to use the lands necessary to complete this project while preserving Lebanon’s sovereignty right.

For his part, Minister Salam welcomed the Iraqi delegation, thanking them for their “supportive and continuous fraternal initiatives towards Lebanon, in terms of providing fuel for electricity or wheat, and today working to revive Lebanon economically, reactivate Iraqi oil pipelines, and help Lebanon play its constructive geopolitical role.”

He added: ‘With the Arab rapprochement between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Syrian Arab Republic and the re-operation of flights between Damascus and Jeddah, it seems that things are moving towards openness…”

Salam considered that the Caesar Act must eventually come to relieve Lebanon from the pressures of the Syrian displacement
and help in the reconstruction of Syria, which will provide very large job opportunities for various types of companies.

He stressed his “support for the Iraqi project because of its supreme national interest and benefit for Lebanon, the people and the state.”

Salam assured that intentions exist to proceed with this project, while affirming that its success is also linked to positivity from the Syrian side.

Accordingly, both sides agreed to speedily and carefully follow up on the project while awaiting the Syrian response to the proposal of the Iraqi delegation, which will visit the Syrian capital immediately after the end of its visit to Lebanon.
