‘Saudi Arabia is the World’s Most AI-Ready Government’

by Marco van der Hoeven

Saudi Arabia takes the top position in the Government Strategy Index for Artificial Intelligence, according to Stocklytics.com. The country’s perfect score of 100 places it ahead of 60 other nations, marking a significant milestone in its pursuit of AI-driven excellence.

This achievement is primarily attributed to the implementation of the National Strategy for Data and AI (NSDAI), a comprehensive plan aimed at integrating data and AI into the nation’s development goals. Germany and China closely follow Saudi Arabia in the rankings, with Colombia being the sole Latin American country to be featured, indicating a shift from the usual dominance of advanced economies in such indices.

The comprehensive evaluation criteria for this ranking included various factors, such as the establishment and effective execution of a national AI strategy, dedicated government authority for AI, budget allocation for AI initiatives, and the establishment of clear national targets for AI advancement.

The Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) has been instrumental in driving these initiatives, aligning with the goals set by Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Prime Minister, and Chairman of the SDAIA Board of Directors, and the broader objectives of Saudi Vision 2030.

In the context of global AI development and investment, Saudi Arabia demonstrated its commitment to shaping the AI landscape through its participation in the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Priority Miami Summit. The summit focused on finding impactful solutions for AI regulation and advancing technological investments.
