LOS GATOS, California, USA, July 5, 2022 / — aiXplain announces a collaboration with Cisco and the UAE Ministry of AI (MoAI) to launch an immersive educational program. Sibaq Lahja (“Breed of a Dialect”) is a boot camp designed to equip young coders and software engineers in the United Arab Emirates with the skills needed to develop and deploy AI solutions in the field of data processing. Arabic natural language (TAL).

As a subfield of computer science and artificial intelligence (AI), dedicated to refining the interactions between computers and human (“natural”) languages, NLP is becoming one of the most exciting areas in the AI. Today, NLP is used in a multitude of forms such as; chatbots, voice assistants, translation services, digital calls, etc. With an ever-increasing need for such apps as well as a history filled with advances in English-language NLP, the need for multilingual models is becoming more and more prevalent. Therefore, this program combined with education and talent development pushes for more inclusive technologies, starting with the implementation of the Emirati dialect in the NLP ecosystem.

In this immersive program, participants will not only develop a solid basic knowledge base in ML and NLP, but they will also work alongside highly experienced scientists in the field. The inaugural phase of the program involves the design of hand-picked courses to enable a deeper understanding of key concepts in support of the eventual development of an Arabic Diacritist. Future phases of the program include using the diacritizer to create a text-to-speech system to tackle real-world applications, such as audiobooks and screen readers. Participants will ultimately build local capacity to drive the adoption and implementation of AI solutions in the UAE.

aiXplain supports participants, eager to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world AI applications, by providing the necessary infrastructure to support their model development journey. Participation includes access to aiXplain’s unique set of powerful developer tools such as; Designer, FineTuner, AutoMode and Benchmarking features to understand, support and optimize the performance of AI/ML models. Designer and FineTuner provide customizable information on the selection of data required for optimal recycling of the base system. AutoMode, an AI-powered AutoML system, can be leveraged to ensure continuous performance optimizations, and aiXplain’s benchmarking tools provide detailed insights into optimal performance improvement, such as viability, quality, latency, speed, footprint, cost, bias and drift tracking. Through this collaboration, participants will enjoy the benefits of fully supported expert-level tools and mentorship for all their creations.
