The Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI) is organizing the UAE Innovates Exhibition at the Festival Garden in Expo 2020 Dubai, during 11-16 February, 3pm-8pm, and will host daily sessions on the theme of innovation for the public.
The exhibition is a part of the UAE Innovates 2022, which takes place throughout the UAE in February. A special installation for the exhibition at Expo will showcase special air purifying stations designed to sit alongside roads and an AI assistant that can help airports maximise efficiency are among government innovations and technologies.
The UAE Innovates is one of the world’s largest nationwide innovation festivals that comprises events across all seven emirates throughout February. MBRCGI’s initiative is part of the government's ongoing efforts to support a culture of public sector innovation by celebrating achievements and recognising novel solutions and processes.
Visitors to the UAE Innovates Exhibition at Expo will be able to engage in a range of experiences and activations provided by federal entities including Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Climate Change, National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NECMA), Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, and General Civil Aviation Authority, Emirates Health Services (EHS). Local government entities such as Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) will also participate in the exhibition showcasing their novel innovations.
The exhibition, taking place at the Festival Garden, is divided into five zones that are Health Innovations, Future Economy, Utilising Data, Tech for Good, and Green Barjeel.
The Ministry of Interior will display four innovative products, including the Emirates Sniper project, which is a remote-controlled vehicle used for security at events, the Emirates Falcon drone project, the Fire Robot project, which is mini fire-extinguishing mechanism, and the Bin Woriqa smart service project which provides doctors easy access to hospitals.
Also on show is a National Early Warning System, an integrated system designed, by the Ministry of Interior to protect lives and property by delivering warning messages during emergencies and crises via mobile phones, radio and television, smart screens on roads, and loudspeakers in mosques.
The Ministry of Climate Change will showcase the ‘Green Barjeel’ project, which involves installing algae stations in strategic locations, primarily; next to main roads, in order to absorb and store greenhouse emissions. Carbon emissions management is monitored in real time via a smart electronic platform.
The General Civil Aviation Authority will showcase AI Planner, which is an electronic assistant that can help Air Traffic Control Officers maximise efficiency and increase capacity. The AI Planner can process information faster than humans, providing Air Traffic Control Officers with accurate predictions on traffic flow and swiftly suggesting safe decisions.
UAE Innovates was launched by the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre of Government Innovation in 2016 following the success of UAE Innovates Week. Full agenda of UAE Innovates 2022 is available on the website: https://uaeinnovates.gov.ae/
