Hamad Obaid Al-Mansoori, head of the UAE digital government and director-general of the telecommunications and digital government regulatory authority, said that the use of facial recognition technology in the registration process of the Digital ID app is a key step towards the implementation of emerging technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI), to establish a digital lifestyle in the UAE.
