Alnahhas said: “I was proud to participate in this important panel discussion around deepening the conversations on how we can continue creating meaningful partnerships that will enable exponential growth in this exciting AI economy – especially those that can be achieved through public-private partnerships. As an AI startup, nybl has learned many useful lessons and identified multiple opportunities, as we recognise more and more, that the power and potential of AI is as an enabler of good for multiple sectors and industries throughout the UAE."
