Abu Dhabi unveils world’s biggest Arabic

Abu Dhabi's cutting-edge research hub has unveiled the world's biggest natural language processing model for the Arabic language.

Natural language processing, or NPL, is a key part of the booming artificial intelligence sector, helping computers to decode the spoken and written word to boost the development of everything from language translation tools to Siri and Alexa-style smart assistants.

The Noor model, developed at the Technology Innovation Institute, may give the Arab world a new edge in the push to digitalise as tools like chatbots, market intelligence and machine translation skew heavily to English and Chinese-speaking markets.
