In fall 2018, The Future Society taught a 3-day executive education course on Governing the Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the United Arab Emirates. Through in-class discussion, lectures and a collective intelligence platform, the sessions were designed to enable course participants to share their own thinking. The aim was to foster critical thinking about the development and deployment of AI, its risks and its opportunities.

This intense 3-day program was divided into 9 sessions and covered various aspects of the rise of AI and its governance such as its uses in public and private sectors; its geopolitical implications; education reforms, skill & retraining; and foreseeable job automation in the United Arab Emirates.
