AI Pioneer Partners with Phi Science Institute to Host Artificial Intelligence Summit in Jordan

Beyond Limits, a pioneering American Artificial Intelligence software engineering company, is working in cooperation with Phi Science Institute to present the 2019 Arab Artificial Intelligence Summit (AAIS). Sponsors are prepared to host over 1,600 AI professionals, scientists, government representatives, start-ups, and stakeholders from all over the world between October 29-30 on the Dead Sea in Jordan.

AAIS Theme: The Future is Now – Share the Vision. Inspire the Future.
Beyond Limits’ CEO, AJ Abdallat is returning to his hometown for this event to give the keynote speech. A leading goal is to share the vision and inspire the future around the important role Cognitive AI will play in evolving technology. The conference will afford the chance for companies like Beyond Limits to come together with the AAIS community to exchange ideas, expertise and knowledge, with the goal of encouraging younger generations to establish projects powered by AI to solve complex problems facing both science and society.

“It’s important to spread the message that AI is here now,” says Abdallat. “We are on a mission to bring science and tech proven in space down to improve life here on Earth. The Middle East is fertile ground for innovation, and we are really excited that AAIS will afford us the invaluable opportunity of coming together in collaboration with diverse nations, businesses, young entrepreneurs, and more to share our vision and inspire the future through partnership, mentorship, progress, growth, opportunity and ambition. We are honored to be included in such a distinguished summit – working together toward accomplishing common goals that matter.”

Abdallat, alongside Beyond Limits’ COO, Dr. Meghan Sharp will both act as keynote speakers. Abdallat will be presenting on the importance of AI, why it matters, and how it affects governments and private companies. Sharp will be presenting on how AI will play a crucial role in the future of energy, renewables, and sustainability. Beyond Limits’ Technical Head of Industrial IoT, Dr. Kristin Lennox will also be providing a talk about how machines think compared to humans.
