About the White Paper

The program is based on a white paper that explains how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality will promote economic growth and diversify the economies of countries around the world. As a result, many countries in the Arab world have launched large-scale initiatives to promote the use of these technologies. However,  the growth promised by smart technologies can only be achieved by bridging the skills gap.

 

As the nature of work constantly changes and roles are reshaped, new approaches to learning will be needed. In fact, while smart technologies are creating new trends in the workforce, they also allow us to adapt and make use of new developments. For this reason, we present a personalized, accelerated, continuous, and experiential approach to learning, powered by technologies such as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, blockchain, and new digital learning platforms. Scaling up the new learning model will require an ecosystem approach, organized by governments within special initiatives to support young groups to develop these skills.
