Approximately 313 million people speak Arabic, making it the fifth most-spoken language globally.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has made significant strides in the field of artificial intelligence and language technology by launching a large Arabic language model. This development involves the creation of advanced AI software, such as Jais, an open-source Arabic Large Language Model (LLM) with high-quality capabilities.

This initiative, driven by organizations like G42 and the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), aims to lead the Gulf region’s adoption of generative AI and elevate Arabic language processing in AI applications. The UAE’s commitment to developing cutting-edge technology like NOOR and Falcon demonstrates its determination to be a global leader in the field of AI and natural language processing.
