UAE lawyer and legal adviser Mohammed al-Najjar said that this year’s slogan of the GITEX Global Exhibition in Dubai is (the year when we can imagine AI being in everything in our lives) and an opportunity to think momentarily and reflect on the shape of our future that AI fills its details, which is very close.
Al-Najjar, the first lawyer to participate in the GITEX Global Exhibition in Dubai, added that he is participating in the exhibition for several reasons, namely, the search for humans in two important parts: First: the future of people’s work and jobs, and it is questioned whether many people will lose their jobs like many in the United States to have artificial intelligence replace employees. Here, it is necessary to refer to the right to work and earn, which is a human right guaranteed by domestic and international law, and the second part: It is human rights in the world of artificial intelligence, specifically intellectual property rights, ensuring privacy and protecting personal data and information also guaranteed by laws.
He added that the exhibition was an opportunity to discuss the future form of counsel’s job, And will AI threaten the jobs of hundreds of thousands of lawyers around the world and is it possible that the justice system in all its details will become AI-based, and will we see a robot judge or lawyer in the future, stressing that this can only be conceived in rich discussions in an exhibition the size of GITEX Global.
Al-Najjar noted that, technological development is a double-edged weapon. When Alfred Noble invented dynamite, his purpose was noble in using it to help miners blow up rocks to extract the treasures of the earth’s subsoil, but unfortunately humans used his invention to detonate in wars and kill each other. It is important to mention that AI facilitates people’s lives by doing multiple functions that facilitate time, effort and money. But we must not lose sight of human rights in protecting their data and not robbing them of what they have, and protecting intellectual property rights because it’s not legal, and logical to steal a human effort to put so much time, effort and money into inventing something. and then someone else comes to steal or reproduce their idea without any regard for the first person’s effort. Here we say that just as you have a doctor who works with you to help you protect your health from diseases, you should have a lawyer who will help you protect and guarantee your rights from loss, especially if you are an investor or a startup.
Lawyer Mohammed al-Najjar praised the state’s AI legislation since the UAE is the first in the Middle East to use all that is modern in the field of artificial intelligence, in particular, Dubai noted that this is a wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, Ruler of Dubai, Dubai is the easiest and easiest city to live in the world. His Highness also conveys this vision to the leaders in the second grades. in the field of artificial intelligence “, which is the same as in legal protection in the field of artificial intelligence.
al-Najjar said: “I am a lawyer and I am constantly following changes and introducing laws. Everyone who works in the field of law in the UAE is aware that the law is changing rapidly, commensurate with the development of technology. In order to protect people, businesses and society in general, and the objectives of these laws are not only to protect, it also encourages, for example, the promotion of start-ups and the promotion of the use of technology in all areas, Let’s look at the forms of artificial intelligence around us in Dubai, Dubai has had a subway without a driver for more than 10 years. Dubai has a flying car, Dubai is the first city in the world to raise the logo of paperless transactions to preserve the environment, Dubai is the most popular city in the world where electronic transactions are used during most aspects of everyday life.
He stated that protection against any risks of AI is carried out through several factors, the most important of which are awareness-raising and education through the optimal and rational use of AI techniques, guaranteeing legal rights, anyone before investing in any field of artificial intelligence. He has to consult his lawyer to study all ideas and plans legally to protect himself and his clients, whether clients or employees. The advantages of artificial intelligence are many, the most important of which is that human beings can do many tasks themselves easily and easily. It saves time, effort and also money, and artificial intelligence contributes to facilitating people’s lives, preserving the environment, converging societies and understanding each other.
