Some of the world’s top experts and specialists in generative AI will participate in the Dubai Assembly for Generative AI, the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has announced.

The second chapter of this flagship gathering will be held this October under the directives of H.H.

The Assembly will be held on October 11-12 at the Museum of the Future and AREA 2071 in Emirates Towers in Dubai, featuring sessions that will be joined by industry officials, experts and decision-makers, including more than 70 speakers from public and private sectors and major international companies such as Meta, Deloitte, Google, PwC, Microsoft, SAP and others, are set to participate. The Assembly’s five key themes will be: Generative AI 101; Sector Deep Dives; Governments, Regulators & Generative AI; Generative Al and Other Emerging Technologies: Enabler or Competitor?; Big Tech vs Emerging Startups: Where Do They See Their Competitive Advantage?

Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of DFF, said: "The Dubai Assembly for Generative AI has rapidly established itself as an influential global platform for exploring emerging technology. It is the preeminent global gathering of its kind, drawing the most influential decision-makers, experts, academics, and stakeholders from across industries.
