The Italian Embassy in Riyadh has organised, in collaboration with the ICE Office/Agency and the Saudi Center for International Strategic Partnerships (SCISP), a virtual round table to explore opportunities for collaboration between Italy and Saudi Arabia in the field of artificial intelligence and robotics.
On the Italian side, participants include the Scientific Director of the Italian Institute of Technology, the President of UCIMU (the main trade association) and the Director of the Artificial Intelligence Centre of the Turin Polytechnic. The participants for Saudi Arabia are the Saudi National Centre for Artificial Intelligence, a senior official from the Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources and the CEO of the National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NIDLP) for the Industry 4.0 sector.
The initiative will be an opportunity for dialogue and discussion on these issues, with the presentation of Italian excellence in the sector and of the development and investment plans of the Saudi government.
Saudi Arabia, within the framework of the Vision 2030 reform programme, intends to become a world leader in Artificial Intelligence, with the aim of diversifying the Saudi economy to reduce its dependence on hydrocarbons. The government, in particular, is looking to develop the non-oil sectors, with a focus on services and manufacturing.
The round table will take place on Wednesday, 16 June, from 10:30 to 12:00 Standard Italian Time. Interested businesses can sign up by 15 June at the following website: https://www.ice.it/it/area-clienti/eventi/dettaglio-evento/2021/@@/968
