As the Middle East continues to work towards building smart city initiatives and artificial intelligence strategies, Amity University Dubai plan to contribute through data driven research and methodologies, while also preparing students for the future of workplaces.
The University’s second International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Knowledge Economy (ICCIKE 2021) aimed to provide a platform for researchers and academics across the globe, to share their thoughts, teachings and findings within the field of computational intelligence and contribute to the development of a futuristic knowledge economy, with a focus on the National Advanced Sciences Agenda 2031. The goal of the 2031 Agenda is to promote advanced sciences and research that will support the UAE’s efforts to empower its people, by adopting modern technologies and applications into all areas of life.
The conference opened with an inaugural ceremony that included keynote speeches by Dr. Eesa Mohammed Bastaki, President of University of Dubai and Dr. Eva-Marie Muller-Stuler, Advanced Analytics & AI Practice leader at IBM. This was followed by the launch of the Conference Proceedings and Abstracts Book.
The two-day virtual conference attracted over 200 papers from around the world, with a review committee of 322 international scholars, scientist and academicians that finally selected 100 papers that were presented. E-Governance, disruptive technologies, leveraging technology in central banking, logistics and IoT based survival strategies, biophotovoltaics for energy generation analysis, the impact of covid-19 on the world economy and sustainable consumerism, are some of the many areas of research and study that were covered.

Our undergraduate and post graduate students are the future leaders and researchers of tomorrow. We want to give them the tools and knowledge they need to succeed, help them grow within this exciting field and gain more insight through these collaborative opportunities. The varying perspectives and diverse ideas that can be generated in such a knowledge sharing space is immense.”
