ABU DHABI, UAE – The International Holding Company (IHC) has announced the creation of a new Board Observer position for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Observer, named ‘Aiden Insight’.

This strategic initiative positions the Abu Dhabi-based IHC as a pioneer in leveraging AI for corporate governance and decision-making.

Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan, IHC Chairman, said, “Our decision to appoint Aiden Insight as an AI Board Observer is a testament to IHC’s commitment to innovation and forward-thinking leadership.”

He said, “Aiden will provide us with unparalleled data analysis and strategic insights, ensuring that IHC remains at the forefront of industry developments and continues to deliver value to our stakeholders.”

He added, “IHC pioneers corporate governance by integrating Aiden’s AI insights as a Board Observer into its strategic decision-making process.”

“Aiden Insight” is a virtual entity endowed with sophisticated AI capabilities, and is set to revolutionize the way IHC navigates the complexities of the global investment landscape.

This groundbreaking initiative by IHC is powered by the AI capabilities of G42 in collaboration with Microsoft, setting a new benchmark for excellence in artificial intelligence development in the business and investment domains.

Leveraging the largest AI computing system in the UAE, G42 are developing Aiden to serve as an IHC Board Observer, with the ability to continuously process and instantly analyze decades of business data, financial information, market trends and global economic indicators.

The name Aiden Insight encapsulates both symbolic meaning and functional purpose for its Board Observer AI role.

Aiden, of Irish origin (both a male and female name), meaning ‘little fire’ or ‘fiery one’, symbolizes the AI’s capacity to ignite innovation and provide dynamic insights, while Insight, highlights its ability to deeply analyze data and aid the board with valuable perspectives.

Together, Aiden’s name serves both as an “aid and an enhancer”, contributing to informed and strategic decision-making on the Board.

The role of “Aiden Insight” will encompass a wide range of responsibilities, including continuous data analysis, risk assessment, strategic planning support, innovation tracking, and ethical and compliance monitoring.

Aiden will attend IHC Board meetings as a non-voting observer, offering real-time insights to inform discussions and guide decisions.

“We are proud to welcome Aiden Insight to our Board as the AI Observer. Powered by G42 in collaboration with Microsoft, this groundbreaking initiative reflects our dedication to embracing cutting-edge technology and innovation, ensuring that IHC remains a leader in strategic investment and corporate responsibility,” said IHC CEO Syed Basar Shueb.

Aiden’s role will contribute to efficient resource management, improved risk management, and the maintenance of the company’s reputation for ethical leadership.
