Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on Tuesday launched the world's first and largest AI prompt engineering training initiative, "One Million Prompters" to upskill one million people in prompt engineering in the next three years.

This global initiative is overseen by the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF).

Speaking at the launch, Al Maktoum, who also serves as Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the DFF, said the aim is to "prepare, develop and empower competencies with the skills needed to harness the potential of AI applications to advance innovation, progress and economic growth," WAM reported.

The Crown Prince emphasized the importance of being aligned with the latest technology to make governments and societies successful. He noted that the UAE is making tremendous technological progress in the new skills market, including coding, and added that prompt engineering has become one of the most promising skills.

"We want to be the most future-ready city and to continue preparing for the AI era by developing expertise and skills that support global technological transformation, placing Dubai at the forefront of innovation," he said.

The initiative has been launched in line with the Dubai Universal Blueprint for Artificial Intelligence program, which aims to accelerate the adoption of AI applications.

The "One Million Prompters" is one of its kind prompt engineering initiative that involves crafting precise and effective instructions for AI software to get desired results including generating creative content.

During the launch of the initiative, the Crown Prince announced the second edition of the Global Prompt Engineering Championship with expanded categories such as software, videos, and other key fields.

"This global championship witnessed outstanding performances from some of the world's most promising talents in prompt engineering. We look forward to attracting a greater number of competitors from around the world, across new categories and sectors," he said.

"We aim for this competition to become an annual global platform that empowers talents and highlights the importance of cooperation among stakeholders to shape a better future for societies through technological progress," he added.

Earlier this week, Al Maktoum kicked off the Global Prompt Engineering Championship in Dubai, featuring 30 competitors from 13 countries.
