An international Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem will be run in Iran with the cooperation of 10 countries and centrality of Iran.

According to an ISCA report, the Iranian Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem is going to be run in order to take advantage of the technology’s benefits through applying the countries’ experiences, announced Iranian Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Technology, Masoumeh Bakhshipour.

Today, AI is ubiquitous in the roadmaps of next-generation technology initiatives. Availability of inexpensive, easy-to-use machine learning (ML) engines has made the core algorithms accessible to developers in a wide array of industries.

Bakhshipour explained that based on the PWC report, “45% of total economic gains by 2030 will come from product enhancements, stimulating consumer demand. This is because AI will drive greater product variety, with increased personalization, attractiveness and affordability over time.

According to the report, “the greatest economic gains from AI will be in China (26% boost to GDP in 2030) and North America (14.5% boost), equivalent to a total of $10.7 trillion and accounting for almost 70% of the global economic impact.” Among the industries that have been fastest to adopt AI, according to PwC, are health care, automotive and financial services.

Iran is the 8th country in the world based on high impact and high citation articles and the only country from the Middle East in the top ten countries in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). It has submitted 1.3 percent of the high citation articles in the field of artificial intelligence and also 0.02 percent of the hot articles. The country has also published 271 highly cited papers and 5 hot papers, making it one of the best countries in this field.

The Islamic Azad University ranked at the 17th place among the top 20 institutions with the greatest output of top papers on AI, above Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Max Planck Society and the University of California, Berkeley.
