Tamkeen supports employment of 70 Bahrainis at ADRI

Manama, Aug. 28 (BNA): The Labour Fund (Tamkeen) will support the employment of approximately 70 Bahrainis over the next three years at the Bahrain-based Arabic Digital Research Institute (ADRI), with 40 of them already employed as of date.

The new appointments will be facilitated through Tamkeen’s National Employment Program (NEP) and Mid-Career & Executive Leadership program.

In addition, Tamkeen provided research and development support to the company through the Innovation Program to help with their objective to improve the availability of online scientific and research content in Arabic.

Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Chief Executive of Tamkeen, affirmed the keenness of supporting initiatives such as ADRI, which utilizes technology and innovation to bridge the gap in digital Arabic content.

"Companies that can facilitate the exchange of information and research are an important part of Bahrain’s business ecosystem; they encourage innovation, empower businesses, and help to drive sustainable economic growth," she added.

Ali Mazraeh, ADRI CEO, emphasised that Tamkeen's support will facilitate efforts to deploy computer vision and natural language processing to address the lack of Arabic research content in the MENA region.

"By expanding access to online Arabic content, we can make a substantial contribution to the advancement of Arab culture through empowering researchers, students, and professionals across the region with the latest scientific findings," he said.

ADRI is a leading innovator specialising in developing AI technologies for the MENA region with a mission to remove language barriers for Arabic speakers and empower the educational sector through their platform which houses over 500 scientific and research articles in Arabic covering a wide range of sectors and specialities which have been translated from English using AI.

The agreement is in line with wider efforts by Tamkeen to connect Bahraini tech talent with companies looking to fill specialised roles through initiatives such as Kawader, a portal that connects local ICT talent with employers, and by helping thousands of Bahrainis achieve professional certifications that open up local and international employment opportunities.
