In an attempt to keep pace with the fourth industrial revolution of the Kingdom, and in light of the government’s approach to the necessity of employing artificial intelligence techniques and making optimal use of AI to develop business, the National Space Science Agency organize a 2-day workshop for its employees led by Engineer Mohamed Boualay titled “Artificial Intelligence Techniques and Python Software” in an attempt to potentially link artificial intelligence to their work and to apply it in the areas of space science and applications.

Mohammed Buallay’s mission is to empower individuals and companies with AI and have trained over 1,500+ developers in Machine learning and deep learning with the help of TensorFlow.

Eng. Shaima Almeer commented “Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines and programming them to think like humans and imitate their actions. During the workshop, we were introduced to Python software that is widely used in artificial intelligence, its also an object-oriented software, which has a rich library and is easy to program.”

Eng. Aysha Al Hajeri further added “Successful implementation of Artificial Intelligence techniques allows intelligent onboard processing, advanced database interrogation, and the automated analysis of multispectral imagery. The latter is what we will be focusing on.”

Eng. Ebrahim Al Burshaid additionally explained, based on an article he have read “Among the vast remote sensing applications, the following AI techniques have already been developed: land cover analysis; map-assisted photointerpretation; image segmentation; hyperspectral image analysis; cartographic feature extraction; analysis of geological structures; and structural analysis of complex aerial photographs.” Al Burshaid further added “Our team is in progress to make use of those studies.”

Dr. Mohamed Al Aseeri, NSSA CEO commented “I would like to thank Engineer Mohamed Boualay for this comprehensive workshop, furthermore I would like to advise the team to investigate the possibility of using Artificial Intelligence to automate many human processes, that would have incredible precision, accuracy, and speed.”
