The Abu Dhabi Government highlighted its unwavering commitment to advancing technological innovation on the first day of GITEX Global 2023. Two pivotal initiatives were launched: the Driver Emergency Alert System (DEAS) by the Abu Dhabi Police and AI Rasid by the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA). Both projects underscore the government's drive to deliver smart, sustainable technology that enhances the lives of Abu Dhabi's citizens and residents.

DEAS, a state-of-the-art system active on major Abu Dhabi highways, is a testament to the government's vision for heightened road security. By seamlessly merging with the Safe City system, it strengthens road safety measures and offers comprehensive traffic crisis solutions.

Furthermore, Al Rasid, an AI-powered analytical platform, was showcased at the pavilion. The platform promotes transparency and upholds high operational standards within government and private sector institutions. It plays a pivotal role in driving economic success in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

With its robust capabilities, Al Rasid applies over 200 rules to identify anomalies across more than 80 entities and offers over 20 dashboards to visualise and analyse data, empowering better decision-making. The platform has also pioneered an advanced financial disclosure system, significantly expanding the scope of AI analytics and integrating external data sources. One of the most important features of Al-Rased is the ability to immediately identify and notify users if there is a conflict of interest between internal bidding companies, suppliers and shareholders to ensure equal opportunities and ethical governance.

One of Al Rasid's key features is its ability to identify and promptly alert users to potential conflicts of interest among bidding companies, suppliers, and internal stakeholders, ensuring a level playing field and ethical governance.

The projects were unveiled at the Abu Dhabi Government pavilion, home to 30 government departments showcasing several initiatives and programmes to improve services and lives in the emirate. Alongside the DEAS project and SAVI plan, a number of other launches also took place on day 1 from a range of government entities. Projects and initiatives highlighted the government's efforts to drive digital transformation in several fields, including communications, safety and protection, and analytics.

Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi (SCAD) launched its Insight and Foresight Platform, a cutting-edge tool for key stakeholders. This platform leverages big data and analytics, driven by AI and ML modules, to streamline government efforts, positively impacting cost, efficiency, and time across various agencies, especially in planning and policy.

Abu Dhabi Civil Defence Authority (ADCDA) showcased its T-Sat methodological training system, enabling unified professional forms to create approved reports. ADCA also launched Hemaya, a digital platform via which the Authority can document safety and protection measures for facilities and buildings by linking and integrating government systems electronically, enhancing the customer experience.

The Rasid Dashboard, launched by Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council, enables the monitoring and managing reference analyses of wastewater samples to improve public health and safety by minimising environmental pollutants and developing prevention and response plans in collaboration with the concerned authorities.

Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Artificial Intelligence introduced the Metaverse Lab – Universal Translator, an AI system developed by its Metaverse Centre that can imagine and create any type of content to facilitate next-generation communication, entertainment, and education.

Also, in communications, Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination unveiled its Digital Call Centre for Deaf People of Determination. This service offers geolocation, an SOS call function for immediate emergency help, and video calls at any time, providing help and support.

Abu Dhabi government's participation at GITEX Global for the twelfth consecutive year is a testament to its unwavering commitment to innovation and progress, building on the resounding success achieved in previous editions.
