(Karachi) Saudi Arabia has inked three memorandums of understanding with IT giants IBM, Alibaba and Huawei in areas of artificial intelligence (AI) at a summit held in the kingdom, local media reported.

The agreements were signed on the second day of the Global AI Summit that comes in line with Saudi Arabia’s endeavor to achieve its aspirations for global leadership through the data-based economy and artificial intelligence.

As per details, the Saudi Authority for Data and Artificial Intelligence (SDAIA) and Alibaba Cloud announced that an agreement has been reached to support Saudi Arabia’s path to develop smart cities through artificial intelligence.

Commenting on the matter, SDAIA President Abdullah Bin Sharaf Alghandi said: "Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 has clear goals to transform KSA cities into smart ones by unlocking the value of city data as a national asset to realize Vision 2030 aspirations."

Similarly, SDAIA and Huawei inked a pact to recognise Arabic language and character using AI technology with the help of researchers.

In addition, SDAIA is also seeking IBM's help in developing "real use cases" of AI in areas of health, energy and other sectors, as well as training through a strategic relationship.

The agreements are part of Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 reform plan that aims to promote economic and social policies designed to free the kingdom from dependence on oil exports. It also includes imparting training to 20,000 people in Saudi Arabia over the next decade in the field of AI.
