The presidency is increasingly using robots for sterilization, epidemic control, and the distribution of blessed Zamzam water in the Grand Mosque, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday.
Commenting on the growing use of the AI, the assistant director of technical and service affairs, Mansour Al-Mansoori, said that the artificial intelligence is used in operating robots inside the Grand Mosque according to maps programmed through Google Map, covering all parts of the mosque, including the Mataf courtyard, Al-Masaa, and all its facilities.
Al-Mansoori pointed out that the presidency is actively seeking to benefit from the innovations and technology for providing the world-class and finest services.
For his part, the director of the artificial intelligence office at the presidency, Sinan Al-Turkistani, stated that the office is keen to develop qualitative initiatives aimed at improving the experience of pilgrims while performing their rituals by studying and taking advantage of techniques for identifying languages by sound, image and heat.
It will employ the latest mobile automatic devices that are directly linked to central processing systems and smart databases, which in turn stores data and uses it in planning, operations management and proactive decision-making.
