Financial and payment cards company Visa recently participated at the inaugural Innovation Live! Summit, showcasing its latest payment technologies for the smart city environment.

Over the course of the event, Visa presented its Banking Chatbot, a prototype artificial intelligence (AI) that aids customers with their banking needs. Visitors to the stand were also offered a virtual reality tour of the Visa Dubai Innovation Center.

Karl Tlais, senior director, Innovation & Strategic Partnerships CEMEA, Visa commented: "As an advisory board member, it has been an inspiring period working closely with a dynamic group of government and industry leaders, shaping the innovation summit and solving the City Challenge Watercooler.

"The culminating Green Report is a first step toward showcasing how through collaboration and thought leadership, both industry partners like Visa and the government can help solve smart city challenges."

The Innovation Live! Summit, which is organised by MEED and supported by Dubai Chamber, collated data that will be included in the official Green Report.

The report aims to strategise key developments in a number of sectors. These include healthcare, transport, industrial diversification, smart payments, sustainable energy, and star-ups.

Held on the 21 November, 2016, the Innovation Live! Summit serves as the official anchor event for UAE Innovation Week 2016.
