A Step into the Future with AI in Agriculture: In an industry ripe for digital transformation, the partnership between Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) and Silal is a glimpse into the future of agriculture and food production. By signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during the thematic day at COP28 UAE, they pledge to use artificial intelligence to take on some of the industry's greatest challenges. The initiative aims to not only improve food security and sustainability in the UAE but also foster innovation that can be a model for agri-food sectors around the globe.

Revolutionizing Agri-Tech Through AI:

  1. A Synergistic AI Center of Excellence: The joint center will combine the academic prowess of MBZUAI with the practical and commercial expertise of Silal to generate and commercialize novel AI-driven farming solutions.

  2. Research & Knowledge Exchange: Anticipating acceleration in AI implementation in agriculture, this collaboration will conduct pivotal research on AI applications ranging from crop yield predictions to advanced phenotyping.

  3. Enabling Commercial Ventures: With a clear path to commercialization, research advancements can seamlessly transition into startup and business spinouts, thrusting the UAE into a leadership role in AI-enabled agriculture technologies.
