HH Sheikh Ahmed said: "The Emirates Group has always been a trailblazer in the aviation industry, and innovation is fundamental to our core values, our culture and our mindset. 

"The Innovation Majlis, with its latest tools and tech, is designed to empower our employees to explore new horizons, discover innovative solutions, and drive the future of the aviation industry. It will bring our partners, top tech companies and entities together in one space to address key challenges affecting our industry today."


In its initial phase, the Innovation Majlis features AI-enabled wearable glasses for augmented reality experiences that transform the way we perceive and interact with other people, products or services, as well as haptic gloves, which enables touch interaction in virtual reality to feel the weight, vibrations and resistance of virtual objects, and 3D holographic displays with generative AI, which elevates the experience of interacting with digital signage by providing advanced conversational capability through natural language processing. 

The Innovation Majlis comes hot on the heels of launching Sara, the world’s first checkā€‘in robot assistant.

In addition, the Emirates Group and Dubai Future Foundation have signed an agreement to launch the Emirates Centre of Excellence for Aviation Robotics (ECEAR).
