More than 18,000 students from 40 countries participated in the event in the Kingdom, organized by the Saudi Data and AI Authority in collaboration with KAUST.
Students from general education levels—elementary, middle, and high school levels—from the Misk, Dhahran, Madac, KAUST, Aramco, AlUla, and NEOM schools represented the Kingdom in the competition’s three tracks: AI showcase, AI-generated art, and AI large language model.
SDAIA and KAUST received the global outstanding organisation award for their efforts and commitment to developing AI education.
This is one of the world’s largest competitions, and SDAIA took the lead in adopting it to advance young Saudi citizens and provide them with the experiences to comprehend AI technology, understand its importance, and recognise its impact on various aspects of life while encouraging them to participate in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
