Abu Dhabi’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC) strides boldly into the realm of artificial intelligence with the launch of AI71, an innovative AI company stemming from the Technology Innovation Institute’s (TII) Falcon generative AI models.
This venture marks a significant leap in AI capabilities, offering unprecedented data control options for companies and nations seeking heightened privacy through self-hosted AI solutions.
The unveiling of AI71 was orchestrated by H.H. Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, in the presence of esteemed ministers and representatives from leading multinational tech companies.
