By partnering with Dbrain, NNTC and NGN International will expand its service offering by adding AI solutions that are in high demand in the Gulf region.

We observed a high adoption rate of AI technology in the UAE amongst other GCC countries. A big amount of investment goes into talent development and training in this domain”, said Dmitry Matskevich, the CEO of Dbrain.
“This drive includes the UAE 2031 Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, which aims to raise the country’s IT infrastructure efficiency by increasing its reliance on AI.
