ABU DHABI, 6 July 2020 — The Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), the world’s first graduate-level, research-based artificial intelligence (AI) university, has launched MBZUAI Talks, a series of educational webinars that will delve into some of the most exciting areas of artificial intelligence (AI), from current applications to the endless future possibilities of the technology.

Commencing July 7, the AI-focused webinars will be conducted monthly by the leadership team and faculty members at MBZUAI, and will be open to public through video conferencing. MBZUAI Talks will provide participants a platform to gain insights into the field of AI, and also engage in an open dialogue with AI experts through a Q&A session.

The sessions will host a series of interesting topics highlighting the use of AI across different sectors such as healthcare, transportation, education, energy and more.

MBZUAI Talks will also provide an opportunity to its students to connect with a network of strategic industry and cross-industry partners through dedicated sessions led by seasoned industry professionals from leading global and regional tech companies.

Dr. Behjat Al Yousuf, Executive Vice President for Outreach and Engagement at MBZUAI, said: “Artificial intelligence has helped achieve breakthroughs across different sectors such as healthcare, education, aviation and more. AI is becoming increasingly prevalent in everyday life, and yet the public understanding of exactly what AI is – and what it can do – is still relatively limited. Through MBZUAI Talks, we aim to increase public knowledge and understanding of AI, and discuss how AI has great potential to transform the way we live, work and learn.”
