Dubai-based microservices startup Airtel is using a blockchain platform to enable AI to improve its network performance and the efficiency of its systems.
Dubai-headquartered AI startup Airmail has been building AI solutions in the blockchain space for the past two years, and is using the platform to speed up its AI efforts, according to the company’s CEO, Alad Aziz.
Aziz told CoinDesk:”The AI that we are building is really intelligent and it’s really fast.
We are using this AI platform to accelerate the speed at which we can build AI solutions.”
Airtel, which is based in the UAE, is one of the largest telecom operators in the world and serves over 1.2 billion customers in the Middle East and Africa.
Airtels services include voice and data calls, video calls, and data roaming.
Airmail CEO Alad Zawahri added:”Airtels core business is data, and we believe that this will improve the efficiency and speed of our business as well as the ability to make smarter decisions.”
Dubai, one of Asia’s fastest growing and most advanced cities, is known for its burgeoning startup scene and for its thriving startup ecosystem.
With over 1,500 startups on its platform, the city is also home to several large tech hubs, including Silicon Valley, where Uber has been a leading force in the digital economy.
While the city’s blockchain initiatives have received some attention in recent months, Airmails focus on AI is something that is new to the blockchain world.
Azimul Alam, a research analyst at the Australian National University (ANU), told CoinMarketCap that Airmailing has been doing some interesting research into AI and AI-enabled systems.
Alam noted that the company was also building an AI-powered “virtual assistant” to assist its customers, and that it had been experimenting with building “virtual assistants” using artificial intelligence technology.
“Airmails is one that has been exploring the blockchain and AI space, and it is really interesting to see how it is taking shape,” Alam said.
Alam added that the AI Airmahas technology could also be used to make AI more efficient by giving customers better control over the AI’s actions, such as speeding up the pace at which the AI performs its tasks.
Airtail has also announced a new cloud platform, Airdrop, which will allow its customers to use its AI solutions for their online and mobile apps.
Airdrop was announced last year as a part of Airtail’s new Cloud platform, and Airmayas cloud platform is also available on its website.
Aircrews, the Airtails cloud platform used to manage Airmal’s cloud services, is now also available as an option on Airtalytics, the company\’s analytics platform.
Airlines are looking to AI as a key way to automate processes, improve efficiency, and speed up their operations.
