During the virtual Global Summit of Artificial Intelligence (AI) - organised by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) - stc’s CEO, Nasser bin Suleiman Al-Nasser called on companies to adopt transformative plans and develop solutions to promote innovation via AI and support growth and reduce costs.

During a discussion session on planning for the age of AI, Al-Nasser noted that stc relied on multiple AI technologies to serve customers and the group to improve efficiency and develop better experiences.

In addition, stc announced the launch of its Advanced Cloud Based Data Analysis Laboratory to analyse big data, predictive analysis and AI innovation. The analysis lab aims to provide an integrated structure to support the use of advanced methods and techniques that support open source.

Other features of the lab include the ability to process large quantities of data in a short time frame, as well as the ability to provide a collaborative work environment for multiple users and bodies.
