The Digital Transformation Academy of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has organized a workshop on the technology of the present and future, at MCIT headquarters in Smart Village, for 43 heads and employees at the information systems and digital transformation units in the ministries and government entities relocating to the New Administrative Capital.

The workshop is part of the activities carried out by the Academy, which was launched by the ICT Minister on 27 May 2021, during meeting unit heads. The activities are aimed at developing and building the general and specialized digital capabilities of heads and employees of information systems and digital transformation units in ministries, public entities, and governorates through interactive meetings with officials, experts, and national and international institutions in the ICT sector.

The workshop introduced the most prominent emerging technologies and their applications in various fields, most notably Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data analysis, cloud computing, automation, robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and cybersecurity. It also reviewed AI applications in economic data analysis, translation, political, military and social fields, such as health care and education, namely using AI in medical diagnosis and language learning.

The workshop discussed the significance of cybersecurity and the rules for the safe use of information systems in institutions, in terms of technological principles for dealing with and confronting cybersecurity threats in public and vital institutions, cyberwarfare, and attacks against information systems.

It is worth noting that MCIT is adopting a comprehensive plan to provide technical support to employees and heads of the information systems and digital transformation units in ministries, public entities, and governorates. The plan includes building an operational structure for the units and carrying out programs, workshops, and sessions to train heads and employees. This is in addition to issuing a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) manual for the units.

Furthermore, specialized capacity-building programs were organized for heads and employees at the units in ministries, public entities, and governorates relocating to the New Administrative Capital, where 7,877 certificates were handed out.
