OpenAI and Abu Dhabi's G42 collaborate to enhance AI integration in the Middle East.

OpenAI, the organization behind ChatGPT, has entered a collaboration with Abu Dhabi tech giant G42 to amplify the incorporation of artificial intelligence in the United Arab Emirates and neighboring Middle Eastern regions.

Originating from the emirate of Abu Dhabi, G42 plans to deploy OpenAI's cutting-edge AI models in sectors such as finance, energy, healthcare, and government services.

While the financial specifics of the partnership remain undisclosed, this move aligns with broader initiatives to enhance the UAE's technological landscape.

Neither company was immediately available for comment when approached by Reuters.
Supported by Mubadala, G42 has consistently been a leader in the AI space within the UAE. As evidence, in July, G42 announced its collaboration with the US-based AI entity Cerebras Systems to produce the world's premier supercomputer dedicated to AI training.

Furthering the AI momentum, the Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC) in Abu Dhabi released its Falcom 40B language model for research and commercial purposes earlier this year.
