Mosalem, a Saudi Arabian Robot that Has Been Designed to Understand Local Dialect

Saudi Arabia and AI

Saudi Arabia keep showing deep interest in trend technologies like Artificial intelligence and Robotics After honoring the humanoid robot Sophia making her a full citizen of Saudi Arabia -- the first robot in the world to achieve such a status, Saudi Arabia finally decided to start creating robots of her own instead of making them citizens of the country

In the past 2 years Dr. Faisal   Alsarheed, Assistant Professor in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Saudi Electronic University was developing an interactive robot named "Mosalem" using deep learning in natural language processing(NLP) and natural language understanding(NLU), which are two of the most difficult task for machines because of the wide variety of messages transmitted by language like sarcasm or jokes that robots cannot understand yet. Mosalem can understand the Saudi Arabian dialect only and it was developed on 100k conversations.

why not Arabic?

Dr. Faisal   Alsarheed, justified the choice of focus on Saudi dialect instead of pure Arabic“ People speak in Saudi dialect, not classical Arabic. So, it’s important that the machine understands everyday conversations. The robot is, therefore, being trained to understand local dialect and find appropriate responses.”

the motivation of Saudi Arabia towards technology allows robots to be tested in the real-life environment, Mosalem was recently hired by Al Majd channel and signed its first employment contract, mosalem is already doing a good job. According to Dr. Alsarheed. “Mosalem was hired and treated like any individual offered a job and the funny thing was that he was offered a salary that’s higher than university professors.”

“Machines can replace any job except those that entail emotions and feelings. They can do any rational job such as accounting for example. Jobs for humans will be developed rather than replaced […] Just like scientists learned how to build airplanes after studying birds, AI scientists learn from human intelligence how to develop something stronger and more advanced […] We will see how machines will become smarter than humans,” he said.

Artificial Intelligence Danger

Dr. Alsarheed acknowledges the danger of artificial intelligence technology when in the wrong hands and said we should be able to control them. he also thinks that robots will replace teachers and a lot of other jobs in the future.
“Just like scientists learned how to build airplanes after studying birds, AI scientists learn from human intelligence how to develop something stronger and more advanced”, he further said. “We will see how machines will become smarter than humans.
according to his words, we should be afraid of this technology's advancement since what planes evolved to now, just from a simple observation of our nature we were able to build an Ornithopter now we ride big planes and jets that bypass the sound speed we can only imagine the future of artificial intelligence would be the dumb robots of today can unlock new area of human civilisation like cyborgs etc.


Mosalem was built by Dr. Alsarheed in collaboration with Namthaja, a 3-D company based in Saudi Arabia. For his next project, the assistant professor plans to work on providing increased mobility and better-defined body parts for Mosalem, using funding that has been granted by the university. He believes his work, along with work being done by other scientists within robotics, will help improve productivity in organizations in the future.
