iGA CEO at 18th Arab Businessmen and Investors Conference: Bahrain’s Digital Transformation will Enhance its AI and Fourth Industrial Revolution Capabilities

Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) Chief Executive, Mohammed Ali AlQaed said that the Kingdom of Bahrain’s adoption of Digital Transformation will enhance its artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, in line with global trends to embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the innovations it has to offer. He stressed the improvements this new technology has had on efficiency and performance through more streamlined services.

His comments came during his participation in a Fourth Industrial Revolution and Artificial Intelligence panel on the sidelines of World Entrepreneurs Investment Forum, held on the third day of the 18th Arab Businessmen and Investors Conference. AlQaed noted that Bahrain has been the first to adopt several unique national IT initiatives which promise a better future for citizens. This is thanks to the support and attention given by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to the information and communication technology (ICT) sector of the Kingdom. And this is evidenced by the availability of IT infrastructure, the implementation of new rules specific to the sector, and the adoption of comprehensive policies aimed at activating new technologies and keeping pace with future developments. This has helped to strengthen the national e-culture and encourage the use of modern technology and applications which have benefited both the public and private sectors.
