His Excellency Zulfiquar Ghadiyali, CEO of the private office of HH Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Saeed Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, joined us to speak on the AI panel at our digital trends event. He said that he didn’t believe people should be worried about losing their jobs, saying “the one thing to remember about artificial intelligence, is that it’s not artificial, and it’s not intelligence”.
On the sidelines he spoke about the challenges his office has overcome and how.
“We’re always striving to make processes simpler and digitization and machine-learning are helping us in a very big way. We are a vast group with more than 85 businesses and I think bringing them all on one platform was the biggest challenge. Now thanks to the modern systems of communications we are able to bring them all together,” he revealed.
“In my mind I think that in the digital marketplace, having a platform is the most important thing, be it media, fashion, technology anything you can think of. Everything requires a platform and at our office we’ve been working on these kinds of platforms, and we’re very proud and very happy that we were able to work up something like that.”
