The Artificial Intelligence and Digital Science Research Center (AIDRC) at TII is pioneering and enabling digital transformation in the UAE and beyond, through fostering the adoption of safe, sustainable and reliable intelligent autonomous and connected systems, applications and services.
We are a unique multi-disciplinary and industry-focused applied research and development (R&D) center, and work with a range of disruptive technologies from AI, Security and Wireless Communications (B5G, 6G) to bring to life operational and practical solutions to key challenges faced across vertical markets during their digital transformation journey. In line with the commitment of our leadership to this thriving sector, we work in synergy with key international organizations, such as ITU, and 3GPP in our efforts to make a difference and inspire far-reaching benefits to society in the UAE and the wider region. In doing so, we are well aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and its commitment to harnessing AI for good.
Our international team convenes eminent experts in the field of AI, cyber-security and wireless telecommunication from top-tier academic and research institutes, as well as from across the industry spectrum - Mobile, IoT, Automotive, Broadband, and Energy- under one roof, to solve the most sophisticated societal and business challenges.
To accelerate progress, we collaborate with the world’s most talented scientists (Fields Medalists, and Turin Award recipients), best-in-class international universities, industry leaders, SMEs, and startups with expertise in several core disciplines. These areas include Deep/Federated/Distributed learning theory and algorithms, Large Language Models (LLM), Edge AI, perception, detection, and recognition sensors and algorithms, MLops, Next Generation Mobility Systems (Internet of Vehicles), Intelligent Wireless Environment (RIS, Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces), Internet of Senses (XR, haptics, uRLLC), Digital Twin, Native AI, and Cyber-Reasoning Security systems.
AIDRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a cutting-edge UAE-based scientific research center that aims to lead global advances in artificial intelligence and digital science, advanced materials, autonomous robotics, cryptography, directed energy, quantum, secure systems, propulsion and space, biotechnology, and renewable and sustainable energy.
TII is the applied research arm of the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC) Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees technology research in the emirate.
