Dubai, March 04, 2023: Education authorities in the UAE are drafting a policy to outline recommendations on how Generative AI technology can be used in education. 

“The ministry is putting together a policy that gives guidelines to faculty and teachers on how best to use such large language models to their benefit to help students interact with it but at the same time ensure they have the best learning,” said Ahmad Al Falasi, the UAE Minister of Education at the Alef Education Summit. 

Speaking at the summit, Al Falasi said that the Ministry of Education is committed to adopting trailblazing technologies and is collaborating with its partners such as Microsoft, OpenAI and others to develop GPT-powered AI tutors and evolve education technology to elevate the education system in the UAE. 

The summit organised by Alef, a UAE-based learning solutions provider, at the Museum of the Future in Dubai brought together educators and digital experts to discuss the changes shaping the sector. 

Al Falasi also added that the education sector in the UAE is looking to incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning technology into classrooms by introducing AI-generated tutors.
