Under the agreement, Mubadala will become the owner of a minority stake in the G42 group.

The G42 Group applies the capabilities of artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and data analysis to a number of sectors that include healthcare, smart cities, finance, energy and the consumer sector.
It is worth noting that the “G42” group has played a major role in improving health care services, as it put its supercomputer “Artemis” in the service of a national program launched by the Abu Dhabi Department of Health, which aims to decode the human genome in order to improve health care for patients.
Artemis ranks 31st in the list of the 500 best computer systems in the world, and the group recently contributed to the UAE’s efforts to combat the Covid 19 virus, by playing a leading role in implementing advanced diagnostic and testing programs and implementing the third phase of clinical trials for a vaccine for the virus.
Today’s announcement comes as part of the G42 Group’s efforts to expand its growing technology portfolio. In January 2020, the company announced the acquisition of Bayanat, a comprehensive and specialized geospatial data services and products provider.
In September 2020, the “G42” group became the first company based in the UAE to open an office in Israel, after the signing of the “Abrahamic Agreement”.
The group continues to maintain its leadership position in the field of basic and applied research that contributes to harnessing artificial intelligence and its applications to solve complex problems in various fields.
