OpenAI, the organization behind ChatGPT, has entered into a partnership with G42, a prominent Abu Dhabi-based technology conglomerate.
OpenAI Teams Up with Abu Dhabi G42 to Promote AI in UAE
It was announced on Wednesday that the partnership will work to increase the use of AI in the UAE and other Middle Eastern markets.
Abu Dhabi has launched G42 and declared its intent to implement OpenAI's generative AI models across many sectors, including the economy, the military, and the public sector.
While the exact financial details of the partnership remain undisclosed, this move is part of a broader strategy to bolster the technology industry in the UAE.
As of now, neither OpenAI nor G42 have provided official comments regarding this development in response to requests.
G42, backed by Mubadala, has been at the forefront of AI integration in the UAE. In July, the company disclosed its achievement in creating the world's largest supercomputer dedicated to AI training in collaboration with Cerebras Systems, a U.S.-based AI company.
In a significant move for AI research and development, Abu Dhabi's Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC) made its Falcom 40B large language model (LLM) open source for both research and commercial purposes in May.
G42 has declared its intention to include Microsoft's Azure data centers into its AI infrastructure in an effort to increase AI adoption in the region.
OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, visited Abu Dhabi in June as part of his global tour, advocating for international regulatory frameworks governing AI developments.
This collaboration signifies a major stride in the ongoing effort to foster AI advancements in the UAE and the broader Middle East region. The union of OpenAI's expertise with G42's commitment to technological progress is expected to yield innovative AI solutions that can drive positive change in the region's various sectors.
