Stallion AI and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai have teamed up to launch a new project that will allow students from all disciplines to become Certified Artificial Intelligence (AI) Citizens. Participants in the 365 Digital AI Citizenship program will receive a personalized learning plan as well as access to an exclusive worldwide community of experts to assist them in determining their future job path in the AI economy.
Artificial intelligence is already mainstream technology in 86 percent of enterprises’ day-to-day business operations, according to the program’s debut. AI’s ability to transform productivity is predicted to add $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030 as it spreads across industries and professions.
Explaining the importance of the initiative Samer Obeidat,CEO of Stallion AI, said, “All future jobs will involve AI in some form, so everyone needs some understanding of the field. The biggest barrier to optimising the technology is the lack of knowledge and skills, so introducing young people to AI through this Citizenship program will ensure that they are highly sought after employees of the future, with the ability to both utilise and enhance AI functions in the workplace.”
As part of their studies, all RIT Dubai students will be able to participate in the 365 Digital AI Citizenship program. Students will attend the AI Citizenship Course after an initial knowledge and needs assessment, which provides all of the necessary knowledge to operate in an AI environment. After successfully completing the course, the Stallion AI Institute and RIT Dubai will grant you AI Citizen status.
Participants will also have access to the AIQOM platform, which is a one-of-a-kind global digital ecosystem with four virtual hubs. The AI Academy offers a multilingual platform of programs and courses, while AI Nation connects AI professionals and students from around the world. The Virtual AI Lab is the world’s first multilingual Lab of its sort, allowing anyone to learn about AI and how it may be used to solve real-world problems. Developers and non-technical AI users can explore, publish, and monetize digital data and AI assets on the AI Marketplace, which is a decentralized open AI market.
Speaking about the initiative, Dr. Yousef Al-Assaf, President of RIT Dubai, said,“This is an exciting collaboration that supports our commitment to go beyond traditional university education to prepare RIT Dubai students for the world of opportunities that awaits. Artificial intelligence is an increasingly critical component of the global economy and, as Certified AI Citizens, our graduates will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to play a leading role in this future-defining technology.”
On behalf of Stallion AI, Mr. Obeidat, added, “Within the next couple of years, we will see a transition to a new society and economy in which machine intelligence is creating wealth and dominating the job markets. As an active artificial intelligence citizen, you are expected to know how to function in the future AI nation, and to navigate a digital world, with its different nature of work, economic landscape, and lifestyle, and this is what the program will help students to achieve.”
