Abu Dhabi-based Core42 has unveiled Jais Chat, a bilingual AI mobile application now available for download on iOS. This chatbot, developed to meet the growing demand for Generative AI capabilities, is poised to revolutionise digital interactions within the region.

Core42, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi’s G42 artificial intelligence and cloud company, is a leading provider of sovereign cloud, cybersecurity, and AI infrastructure solutions.

Jais Chat's interface resembles popular AI interfaces such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s CoPilot, providing users with a familiar yet advanced platform.

Tailored to meet the expanding usage of GenAI, Jais Chat enables users to access information, find solutions and engage in seamless conversations using various prompts.

Leveraging G42’s extensive language model for Arabic, named Jais and developed in collaboration with Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence and Silicon Valley-based Cerebras Systems, Jais Chat sets a new standard for Arabic language processing.

“With its Arabic-first approach, Jais is redefining how bilingual individuals interact with technology,” commented Andrew Jackson, Executive Vice President and Chief AI Officer at Core42. “Jais Chat represents a significant step forward in our mission to democratize AI access worldwide.”

Core42 has announced plans for future iterations of Jais Chat, which will include enhanced functionalities such as document processing, voice conversation capabilities, and enterprise support with customizable subscription models.

The app’s name, Jais, pays homage to the UAE’s highest peak in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, symbolising its ambition to achieve new heights in AI innovation.

At its core lies Jais 30B, hailed as the world’s most performant Arabic Large Language Model (LLM).

Trained on a vast dataset comprising 126 billion Arabic tokens, 251 billion English tokens, and 50 billion code tokens, Jais Chat boasts unparalleled proficiency in Arabic language processing and accuracy, rivaling top-performing English language models of similar magnitude.

Jackson revealed that “Since Jais' inception in August 2023, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. With the recent launch of JAIS 30B, we’ve witnessed a significant enhancement in its performance metrics. With its Arabic-first approach, Jais is redefining how bilingual individuals interact with technology.”

Key Features

*Bilingual Capability: Fluent in both Arabic and English.
*Cultural and Linguistic Sensitivity: Engineered with an Arabic-centric model for efficient processing of Arabic text.

Unique Features

Generative AI Power: Capable of summarisation, content generation and information retrieval with an Arabic-first approach.

Exciting updates in the pipeline for Jais Chat include document processing, customisable user settings, voice conversation capabilities, and an enterprise support and subscription model tailored to businesses seeking advanced functionalities.

Despite Arabic being spoken by approximately 400 million people worldwide, its representation in AI developments has historically been limited.

Jais Chat aims to bridge this gap by offering a cutting-edge platform that caters to the unique linguistic and cultural needs of Arabic speakers, marking a significant milestone in the evolution of AI technology.

Jais Chat’s launch opens up new possibilities for the region, promising to revolutionise government communications, elevate customer service automation and empower workforces across various sectors.
