RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The second-ever Global AI Summit concluded today, affirming the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s recognition of, and investment in, the rising importance of artificial intelligence (AI). The three-day global event gathered prominent leaders and experts in AI to discuss opportunities and limitations posed by the technology. Hosted by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA), the Summit attracted more than 15,000 participants, and 200+ speakers from over 90 countries.


“We are witnessing the exponential growth of AI and its potential benefits for society today and tomorrow,” said H.E. Dr. Esam Alwagait, Director of the National Information Center in Saudi Arabia, said in the closing remarks. “Together, we can build a pioneering model that unlocks the value of data and AI that will propel knowledge-based economies, solve challenges and provide a brighter future for generations.”

The next day, Saudi Arabia announced it would join the World Bank’s Digital Development Partnership, which helps bring AI technologies to developing countries.

Today, the Summit concluded by launching a new joint initiative between SDAIA and Google Cloud aimed at empowering women to occupy roles in AI and machine learning. The program will provide free training to 25,000 women over the course of five years with the goal of increasing the proportion of women working in the field.

Press Release

Saudi Data, AI Authority (SDAIA) and Ministry of Energy Partner with IBM to Accelerate Sustainability Initiatives in Saudi Arabia Using AI

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia and ARMONK, N.Y., Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced today the signing of a strategic agreement to drive adoption of artificial intelligence in the carbon capture and industrial domains across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Announced at the second Global AI summit in the Kingdom, the first use case under this agreement will be in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy in Saudi Arabia. SDAIA, Ministry of Energy and IBM will use artificial intelligence technology to detect, map, and eventually reduce carbon emissions across the country.

Dr. Majid Al-Tuwaijri, the CEO for the National Center for AI, said, “This agreement with IBM will contribute to creating opportunities by addressing key challenges in circular carbon economy, petrochemical and industrial domains, through the development of innovative solutions in the field of data and artificial intelligence, and the exchange of shared experiences and investment opportunities in this vital area to support achieving the goals of Vision 2030.”

“This agreement would allow us to leverage IBM’s expertise in technologies like artificial intelligence,” Eng. Ahmed Al-Zahrani, Ministry of Energy’s Assistant Minister for Development and Excellence, said, “which will play a key role in promoting the adoption of the Circular Carbon Economy, achieving the goals announced during the Saudi Green Initiative.”

The management of greenhouse gas emissions is critical to the Kingdom’s reaching its objective of net zero,” said Dina Abo-Onoq, Managing Partner, IBM Consulting Saudi Arabia. “Using multiple satellites and different types of imaging technologies, we will train an AI model to recognize and pinpoint different forms of gas across the entire country. By doing so, this will help with earlier and better visibility of the problem which has not been possible with conventional measurement approaches.”

As part of the overall agreement, IBM will work with SDAIA to identify high value applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning to solve challenges in public and private sector organizations in the Kingdom, with a focus on supporting the Kingdom’s sustainability and industrialization objectives.

Saudi Arabia is currently undergoing a major transformation program to become a global logistics hub and industrial powerhouse. The Kingdom has also set a target of achieving net zero in emissions by 2060 and to support the global effort to cut emissions. New cities and infrastructure being built in the Kingdom, such as NEOM or the Red Sea, are being designed with sustainability objectives in mind.

Unstoppable Women of Web3 Launches New Education Streams

First Stream is on Web3, and Partners with Miss O Cool Girls

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Unstoppable Women of Web3 (Unstoppable WoW3), a diversity and education group on a mission to equalize the playing field in Web3, is launching a new way for people to learn about Web3 with focused education streams that will be completely free for all Unstoppable Women of Web3 members. This new series is supported by the founding partner, Unstoppable Domains, the leading platform for user-controlled digital identity on Web3 with more than 2.5 million registered domains. Additionally, Unstoppable Domains’ 130+ collaborators will support the initiative by featuring work created by historically marginalized groups in at least half of all materials used for Web3 education.

Expanding access to Web3 education

Since founding the Unstoppable WoW3 community on March 8, 2022, Unstoppable WoW3 has been exploring how people are deriving the most value from Web3, metaverse and blockchain gaming education. Based on this research, Unstoppable WoW3 is introducing different streams of education that focus on fundamental topic areas, including Web3, Blockchain, and the Metaverse.

Each stream will consist of a variety of content formats including audio and video sessions and written articles produced by Unstoppable WoW3 and its partners. In addition to learning about Web3 theory, participants will also be introduced to real-world examples to learn how these theories are applied to live use cases. The materials are curated in a conversational way that offer a low pressure, friendly environment and allows participants to learn at their own pace. Upon full completion of a stream, participants will earn an Unstoppable Badge that will be attached to their digital identity and viewable via their NFT Domain profile. 

Having more women in the web3 space is critical. Many studies link diversity to indicators of profitability and financial health, including cash flow return on investment, Earnings Before Interests and Taxes (EBIT) margins, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA) margins and gross and net margins (Source:  Catalyst, Why Diversity and Inclusion Matter: Financial Performance June 24, 2020).

“I believe that the future of Web3 should be representative of the diversity of our world. Education is the way to create inclusive opportunities for all,” said Sandy Carter, Founder of Unstoppable WoW3. “Web3 is the future of the internet and for innovation, we need more diverse voices being heard.” 

The Web3 Stream, which will contain 40+ sessions conducted by Unstoppable WoW3 and our collaborators from Gemini, Opera, Prasaga, Celsius, Pinata, Lazy Lions, Sandbox, Decentraland, Polygon and others. Additionally, Unstoppable WoW3 collaborator Learnoverse by BitDegree, a web3 learning hub, has partnered with Unstoppable WoW3 and donated educational materials to the community. The topics will be divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of complexity.  

Alina Bajars, a Head of Partnerships at BitDegree said, “Reliable and accessible Web3 education is not just about making sure women don’t fall behind, again. It’s about giving them tools to lead the new generation of internet.”

In addition, Unstoppable Domains is partnering with Miss O Cool Girls for a special Web3 Education Stream for young girls. Miss O Cool Girls is a web3 extension of the successful web2 brand Miss O and Friends, an original media and lifestyle brand to empower and build self-esteem for tween girls. Miss O and Friends have been featured on CNN, Teen Vogue, and Business Insider and are working to change the toxic content narrative for girls. Once completing the classes successfully, the girls will earn a badge that will live in their Unstoppable Digital Identity. This will be an exclusive POAP – an NFT to confirm the completion of the course and free domain credits to encourage them to start their Web3 journey.

“It’s never too early to start to teach girls about web3,” said Juliette Blake, Founder of Miss O Cool Girls. “The future is female and the next generation needs to be ready to take on the challenge. As this new tech evolves, it’s our chance to shape it with the empowering narrative we want to see, which only comes from inclusion, education and involvement. The future is female and the next generation needs to be ready to take on the challenge.”
