The theme for this year's IEEE GCAIoT 2021 conference is “Digital Transformation and Beyond”; it was chosen in recognition of the ongoing developments in the MENA region regarding the focus on the deployment of “Digitalization” to facilitate and operate the principles and policies remotely. This enables us to sustain the improvement in drastic situations such as the current pandemic. So whenever and wherever you are, AI will keep you connected with the rest of your community, and spreads ideas even when you are apart!
Digital Transformation and Beyond (DTB) is an innovative platform that revolves around the concept of the new technologies and processes that AI can implement in today’s businesses. AI has the potential to help make informed decisions for any business without human interaction which is considered a milestone in the journey of digital transformation.
The theme also highlights the importance of integrating AI and IoT technologies which will help reduce human interactions by shifting to robotics systems, machine learning, while keeping the sustainability of the smart cities' infrastructure.
All the projects, papers, posters, presentations, and events at the conference will focus on nurturing, cultivating, and accelerating the adoption toward the integration of AI and IoT technologies in applications to benefit society.
Join us in three full days of original paper presentations, tutorials, workshops, keynotes, demonstrations, industry sessions, and social events. This is all designed to further career opportunities, and give an in-depth understanding of the latest IoT advancements worldwide. IEEE GCAIoT paves and implements a perfect environment to merge between the power of technology and how we can apply it in a practical way according to the governmental roles even during the "Corona circumstances!"
The challenge is not just a competition; it’s a digital transformation movement. We aim at building qualified calibers in the technical fields. Thus, the program presents training and workshops to the participants and provides them with all the necessary support. After receiving training workshops, participants compete in the local finals; then, winners of each country get qualified for the regional finals that take place annually within the activities of the IEEE Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (GCAIoT) at Dubai in December.
As Andy Chen, the president of IEEE TEMS, says: “In TEMS, we focus on people, and our collective tagline is “Leaders Enabling Products/Services for Good”. Along with technology, we need exceptional talents for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which is important for creating socially impactful products and services. The IoT & AI Challenge is designed to encourage young talents to take on the challenges that can create an impact for humanity, which is also the tagline of IEEE. We are not just organizing the challenge; we are also providing the youth with all the necessary knowledge and insights into the tech industry that’s happening through our “IoT & AI Knowledge Hub”. The aim of the challenge is to build qualified calibers in the technologies of Industry 4.0 in Africa.
Arab IoT & Ai Challenge was launched by IEEE TEMS society in partnership with many regional and local partners all over the MENA region, such as the Academy of Scientific Research in Egypt and Oman, IEEE Sections in Morocco, Egypt, Jordan and UAE, Telecommunication Ministries in Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Oman and UAE, as well as some other innovative and tech support companies such as Ideaspace, Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Intel, Amazon, Here…. etc.
The Africa IoT & AI Challenge has been launched this week in the closing ceremony of IEEE GCAIoT 2021 receiving great support from WAKANDAI Ventures & Benya Capital. Eng. Ahmed El Beheiry, Founder of WAKANDAI Ventures, said: “WAKANDAI is committed to bringing IoT & AI solutions & applications to the African communities. We are pleased to announce that the Africa IoT & AI Challenge is supported by IEEE TEMS organization and the sponsorship of Africa’s prominent Digital Transformation Group “Benya Capital”. Eng. Ahmed Mekky, Chairman & CEO of Benya Capital, also stated that: “Benya Ventures, the dedicated investment fund, technology incubator & startup accelerator arm of Benya Capital, is proud to be the sponsor of the Africa IoT & AI Challenge. Benya Capital is committed to enabling the digital transformation of African Nations and digitally uniting the MENA region.”
Digital transformation is unlocking new avenues for innovation across researchers, academics, and industry leaders that are eager to tap into the potential of this burgeoning area. At the 2022 IEEE GCAIoT, thought leaders and industry experts from academia, government, and industry are gathering to discuss the future of digitalization from a variety of perspectives. The theme for this year is chosen in light of the continuing momentum of digital transformation (DT), which is redesigning and shaping the world of the digital age to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Over 6 years, the IEEE GCAIoT has been the leading forum for researchers, practitioners and stakeholders from academia, industry and government to share their latest research contributions, and exchange knowledge with the common goal of shaping the future of digital transformation.
