Lecture 1:

Artificial Intelligence in the Service of the Prophetic Tradition: Exploration and Applications

by Dr. Saif Al Sewaidi, CEO of ARID Co

The lecture addresses the impact of artificial intelligence on the study of the Prophetic Tradition, starting with the history and development of this technology and its basic concept. We will discuss its applications in Islamic sciences, and delve into the challenges and ethics associated with using it in understanding the Prophetic Hadiths. We will review its role in jurisprudential reasoning and conclude by looking at the future prospects of this fruitful intersection between technology and Islamic studies.

Lecture 2:

AI Applications for Automated Live Translation, and Specialization of Language Models in Quran & Hadith Sciences

By Eng. Mohammad Khair


Automated live translation provides the ability to cross language barriers in teaching, learning, and economic exchange. We demonstrate an application built on Google Cloud tools, and review its potential capabilities and use cases.
Development of large language models using deep learning and AI provide key solutions for information processing, search and retrieval, summarization, translation, and question answering. Language models enable interaction with users using their natural language, empowering applications with linguistic understanding and logic processing for a wide range of computing applications.
We will review open-source resources that enable efficient fine-tuning of language models in Quran, Hadith, and Islamic Sciences. We will also review Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) tools as means of control of language models that enhance its response accuracy, and reduce model hallucinations and errors.
