The Government showcased several initiatives at the event, which is being held from 16-20 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre this year. 

The first one is the Driver Emergency Alert System (DEAS) by the Abu Dhabi Police, while the second one is the AI Rasid by the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA).  

DEAS, a system active on major Abu Dhabi highways, helps with heightened road security. It merges with the Safe City system, and offers traffic crisis solutions.

H.E. major general staff pilot, Faris Khalaf Al Mazrouei, commander-in-chief of Abu Dhabi Police, said, "Our commitment to road safety is unwavering. The Driver's Warning System represents more than just a project, but a pledge to the well-being of our citizens and visitors; safety on our roads is paramount, and this initiative is a giant leap towards achieving this goal. We aim to ensure that every journey on Abu Dhabi's highways is safe for all users."

Al Rasid is an AI-powered analytical platform, to increase transparency in the governmental sectors. It applies more than 200 rules to identify anomalies across 80 entities, and offers 20 dashboards to visualise and analyse data. 

This, according to the Abu Dhabi government, can help in better decision-making. One feature of Al Rasid is the ability to immediately identify and notify users if there is a conflict of interest between internal bidding companies, suppliers and shareholders to ensure equal opportunities and ethical governance. 

Meanwhile, the Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi (SCAD) launched its Insight and Foresight Platform. This leverages big data and analytics, driven by AI and ML modules, to streamline government efforts, positively impacting cost, efficiency, and time across various agencies, especially in planning and policy.

Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority (ADCDA) showcased its T-Sat methodological training system, enabling unified professional forms to create approved reports. ADCA also launched Hemaya, a digital platform via which the authority can document safety and protection measures for facilities and buildings by linking and integrating government systems electronically, enhancing the customer experience. 

Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Artificial Intelligence introduced the Metaverse Lab – Universal Translator, an AI system developed by its Metaverse Centre that can imagine and create any type of content to facilitate next-generation communication, entertainment, and education. 

Also, in communications, Zayed Higher Organisation for People of Determination unveiled its Digital Call Centre for Deaf People of Determination. This service offers geolocation, an SOS call function for immediate emergency help, and video calls at any time, providing help and support.
