At the GITEX (Gulf Information Technology Exhibition) in Dubai earlier this month, some of the technology on display included flying cars, robot dogs, metaverse meetings, and taxis with no drivers.
GITEX, now in its 42nd year, has evolved from a niche, special interest show to the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, attracting 5,000 businesses from 90 nations.
“GITEX is the only place on earth that you can go to see companies from around the world flock to showcase the technology, the innovations,” Omar Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Working Systems told Euronews. This advancement is currently the world’s largest technology exhibition. Furthermore, it exemplifies the success that Dubai and the United Arab Emirates can achieve by concentrating on a single industry. Companies from all over the world are coming to bring their innovations here to first explore new markets, but also to try to penetrate the UAE market because we place a lot of emphasis on technology.
This tech show focuses on the future, and this year, the metaverse was emphasized.
The Luxembourg-based TRMW Foundation introduced its “ROOM” product at GITEX. It is a brand-new video service that combines a 3D video game twist with calls of the Zoom variety. Because it runs in a browser, there is no need to download an application.
“Room is the most lifelike way to communicate with people on the Internet,” stated General Manager and Chief Product Officer Stefanie Palomino of ROOM. Therefore, the fundamental issue that we are fighting is the issue of video conferencing apathy, and as a result, people once again enjoy being together in the digital space.
The Chinese prototype Xpeng X2 was another impressive piece of technology.
“First of all, we start from a very small mini copter, and then we gain our experience in the developments, we gain the weight of the whole design, and also consider different safety requirements and mitigations in our system,” said Eng Liu Xinying, Senior Scientist in Aerospace Engineering at XPENG AEROHT. I think we were together for eight years. As of now and to market it for the future, I believe that we actually need a few years.” World News Spot Live
