G42, the leading Abu Dhabi-based artificial intelligence and cloud computing company, has launched G42onAIr, a video podcast series dedicated to transformative technology, our digital present and future, and all things AI and cloud computing. Hosted by May Ali, a public speaker, moderator and facilitator, each episode takes an industry deep dive through interviews with leaders, technologists and world-class experts working in the field of AI and digital transformation.

As societies continue to progress, more repetitive tasks will transition from humans to AI, and every 21st century citizen will be tasked to learn and adapt with the changing times. While these technologies can feel far away and often misunderstood, AI is already being deployed at scale in many industries, so learning how the technology will fuel our future is more important than ever.

In this series, listeners and viewers can get the scoop on technology trends, challenges and impact – straight from the people who make it all happen.

G42onAIr will also be recording live at Gitex Global in Dubai, where G42 will have an immersive double-decker stand in order to share with the world its ambition to realise Exponential Possibilities - Today using the power of AI as a force for good. In addition to on-stand presentations showcasing its product offering and capabilities, multiple episodes of G42onAIr will be recorded live from the second floor between October 10 and October 14.

Raising awareness about AI

On the podcasts, available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer and YouTube, listeners can learn more about G42 and its businesses – understand what they do, how they do it, and the why. The goal of the series is to raise awareness about AI and digital transformation and promote adoption. It also aims to highlight both the positive and negative impacts of this technology in order to dispel myths and combat misinformation.

With something for everyone to broaden their world and reimagine what AI can do, the company’s hope is that G42onAIr provides insight to business leaders, policymakers, technologists and beyond.
