The Army has set up a quantum computing laboratory and a centre for artificial intelligence (AI) at a military engineering institute in Madhya Pradesh's Mhow. The two centres will carry out extensive research in developing transformative technologies for use by the armed forces. 'The Army, with support from the National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS), has recently established the Quantum Lab at Military College of Telecommunication Engineering, Mhow to spearhead research and training in this key developing field,' the Defence Ministry said. It said the Indian Army is making steady and significant strides in the field of emerging technologies. Chief of Army Staff General MM Naravane visited the facility during his recent visit to Mhow. 'Indian Army has also established an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Centre at the same institution with over 140 deployments in forward areas and active support of industry and academia,' the ministry said in a statement.

Artificial intelligence boosts Abu Dhabi courts' speed, accuracy


With the new artificial intelligence (AI) system of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), cases are identified with a high level of accuracy and requests are processed in an efficient and timely manner, said a tech expert. Alaa Youssef, managing director of SAS Middle East, the firm that offered the AI solutions to Abu Dhabi courts, said judiciary systems worldwide are transforming their operations and functions to keep pace with the digital era. They provide judiciary systems with the capabilities to understand and model their tasks and operations with greater flexibility and accuracy, besides facilitating efficiency and consistency in the overall judicial practice," said Youssef. He pointed out that the goal to introduce AI system in ADJD was to reduce their time in decision-making. The tech expert explained that the judicial department's engagement with SAS was initiated in three main phases: phase one is based on creating visualisations, which involved viewing operational performance of the organisation, gaining performance insights, and ad-hoc analysis. Phase two was about more complex data governance. The third phase was the application of AI and machine learning models on real-world business challenges within the judicial system.

Dubai Health Authority uses Artificial Intelligence to sterilise its health facilities


The Dubai Health Authority, DHA, has begun to sterilise its hospitals and health centres by using smart robots, in line with precautionary measures to enhance the safety of all staff members and patients across the DHA health facilities. The sterilisation process coincides with the return of all diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients. Using smart technology makes the sterilisation process thorough, efficient and less time-consuming. Kholoud Abdullah Al Ali, Project Manager and leader of the DHA's Dubai Future Accelerators team, said that the Authority has begun using eight intelligent robots to perform UV sterilisation scans for all rooms and corridors in its health facilities. Al Ali said the move is part of the DHA's ongoing efforts to adopt the latest technologies and smart systems in its operations and procedures, in line with DHA's strategic plan to keep pace with global developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Al Ali explained the multiple advantages of the UV robot, which can move automatically without the need for human intervention and ensure greater and better coverage of high-contact areas.
