Last month, Dubai unveiled the Dubai Universal Blueprint for Artificial Intelligence, aiming to fast-track the adoption of AI applications. Building on this initiative, the country has now launched “One Million Prompters,” the world’s first and largest AI prompt engineering training initiative.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF), revealed that the program aims to upskill one million prompt engineers over the next three years.

“With this global initiative, overseen by DFF, we aim to prepare, develop and empower competencies with the skills needed to harness the potential of AI applications to advance innovation, progress and economic growth,” said Sheikh Hamdan. “We are experiencing a tremendous acceleration in technological progress, which requires new skills in labor markets. Coding was formerly in demand, but today, prompt engineering has become one of the most promising skills,” he added.

Upon completion of the training, the program will provide engineers with accredited certifications, verifying their expertise. Additionally, the program will host competitions and offer a platform for trainees to network and collaborate with experts in the field.
