The strategy aims to create a supportive AI ecosystem by developing Jordanian talents and expertise in this field, encouraging robotics research and development, and improving the expert system and entrepreneurship environment.

It also aims to create a legislative and regulatory environment that encourages the responsible use of AI and its applications to improve the efficiency of the public sector and priority sectors.
