The UAE was aligned with the overall EMEA area on the top priority, innovation — 64% of UAE organizations chose this as a five-year business goal.

A study shows that 98% of the researched UAE based companies believe artificial intelligence (AI) can help them deal through the current economic uncertainty; however, access gaps between technical and business users must be addressed, according to a new study from Dataiku, the platform for Everyday AI.

The research surveyed 700 IT decision makers across five countries in EMEA, including the UAE. According to the research, 98% of business decision makers in the UAE see AI as a major enabler when looking for ways to be more resilient amid current economic conditions.

“Once again, the report shows us that enterprises here have a strong grounding in the factors underpinning Everyday AI, as they are prioritizing competitive advantage and improved customer experience rather than trying to jump to the end of the story with financial goals like costs and revenue. We have seen that by concentrating on the fundamentals, we naturally curve towards an AI future in which revenues are boosted and costs are reduced,” said Sid Bhatia, Regional Vice President and General Manager for the Middle East and Turkey at Dataiku.. 

According to the research company, ,more than two thirds (68%) of UAE organszations are investing up to 50% of their tech budget in AI and have formalised plans in place driven by specific business goals to be delivered over the next five years.

“We need to fully democratize AI. The wide availability of platforms like ChatGPT and Bard serves as a great example of what that can look like. We must now apply these principles to all established AI platforms and usher in an inclusive era for these technologies — the Age of Everyday AI,” added Bhatia.
