The high-level event brought together government officials, senior executives, thought leaders and decision-makers from across the UK and the Arab World to discuss trade and investment opportunities. Discussions focused on various sectors including healthcare, education, financial services, hospitality, real estate, transport and other key sectors.

Over the years, Deep Knowledge Group has been active in both regions, acting as a catalyst for the Chamber’s efforts in identifying practical initiatives that can strengthen transnational trade ties and bilateral investment flows in the post-pandemic, post-Brexit low-carbon economy.

Attending the event, Dmitry Kaminskiy, General Partner of Deep Knowledge Group, commented: “We commend the various AI-related strategies of the UAE government and their ongoing efforts to embrace new technologies as a matter of national priority. In 2017, the UAE established a dedicated Ministry for Artificial Intelligence to oversee the strategy’s implementation. We are committed to contribute insights that underpin the prosperity of the UAE and its business ecosystem through providing high-quality data for investors, decision-makers, journalists, and experts.

During the Summit, Deep Knowledge Group Head of Investor Relations Talgat Takiyev presented an overview of key milestones accomplished as part of Deep Knowledge Group’s ongoing work with Sharjah Research Technology & Innovation Park (SRTIP), a first-of-a-kind strategic partnership focused on at mapping and developing the longevity sector in the UAE.

These milestones included the recent launch of the world’s largest ‘healthy ageing’ database, a conference co-hosted with the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi, a ‘Wealth is the New Wealth’ Tech Talk with SRTIP, and the Life Science Industry in the UAE Landscape Overview that Deep Knowledge Group launched last year in collaboration with SRTIP.

Speaking at the event, Talgat Takiyev, Head of Investor Relations at Deep Knowledge Group said: “It has been enlightening and encouraging to see the pioneering efforts of the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention, the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park to advance the Gulf’s longevity agenda. The Arab-British Economic Summit aims to connect the various ecosystems of the UK and the Arab world, including through technology and investments, which are at the heart of our business strategy in the UAE.”

Takiyev also touched upon some of Deep Knowledge Group's other Gulf region analytics, interactive reports and IT-Platforms during his presentation, including Global Food Security Q2 2022, Pandemic-Resilient Cities Ranking, Advanced Biomedicine in the Gulf Region Landscape Overview and DeepTech in Gulf Region Industry Landscape Overview 2020, and highlighted overall commitment of Deep Knowledge Group to support further development of technological bridge between UK and Gulf region.

For example, our Advanced Biomedicine in the Gulf Region Landscape Overview offers an in-depth analysis of Longevity efforts in the region, indicating the current levels of Healthy Longevity (Health-Adjusted Life Expectancy), healthcare efficiency, the economic burden of an ageing economy, the degree of development in advanced biomedicine industries, and other parameters specifically related to GCC countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman.

Another interactive report, the Pandemic-Resilient Cities Ranking report, details the comprehensive, efficient, and timely COVID-19 pandemic responses of 100 cities around the world. It evaluates cities’ progress on the basis of six parameters: government efficiency, economic resilience, healthcare management, quarantine measures, vaccination strategy, and cultural compliance. Abu Dhabi was ranked the number-one city in the report, followed by Singapore and Seoul.

Concluding his talk, Talgat Takiyev unveiled Deep Knowledge Group’s Gulf Region DeepTech and Longevity Initiative, which represents a roadmap guiding Deep Knowledge Group’s intensifying presence in the GCC region today and into the future, and announced the upcoming public launch of the Group’s Gulf Region Big Data Analytics System and Dashboard, a first-of-its-kind AI-driven analytical tool to profile, map and generate insights on the entire digital ecosystem across GCC countries, provides automated tools for intelligent data-driven DeepTech decision making for investors, corporations, and governments. The Dashboard will be launched by the end of November 2022 during an upcoming strategic visit to the UAE being undertaken by key Deep Knowledge Group Partners and executives as part of its ongoing mandate to deepen, strengthen and intensify its DeepTech-focused activities in the GCC.
