The Weizmann Institute of Science and Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence in the UAE to Collaborate on Artificial Intelligence Research

Newswise — A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) in the United Arab Emirates was signed on September 12. The signing ceremony, which was held virtually, took place in the presence of Weizmann Institute President Prof. Alon Chen and His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, member of the Federal Cabinet, and Chairman of the MBZUAI Board of Trustees. A delegation headed by President Chen is expected to travel to Abu Dhabi next week to finalize the details of the MoU and discuss its implementation.

The MoU was made possible by the recent agreement for normalization in relations between Israel and the UAE that will be signed in Washington, DC, later this week.

The MoU covers a range of opportunities for collaboration between Weizmann and MBZUAI, including student and postdoctoral fellow exchange programs, conferences and seminars, various forms of exchange between researchers, sharing of computing resources, and the establishment of a joint virtual institute for artificial intelligence.

The collaboration will advance the Weizmann Institute’s flagship project, the Artificial Intelligence Enterprise for Scientific Discovery, which will build on the Institute’s prominence in mathematics and computer science, and which is meant to activate the potential of AI to speed knowledge acquisition in data-heavy endeavors like biomedicine, environmental research, chemistry, and astrophysics.

The Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, is one of the world’s top-ranking multidisciplinary research institutions and is noted for its wide-ranging exploration of the natural and exact sciences. The Institute’s graduate school offers master’s and doctoral degrees across five faculties. Institute scientists are advancing research on the human brain, AI, computer science and encryption, astrophysics, and particle physics; investigating diseases such as cancer; addressing climate change through environmental, ocean, and plant sciences; and more.
