Dubai-based Labiba for Artificial Intelligence has partnered with Bahrain Fintech Bay, a major financial technology hub in the Middle East and Africa for the formation of Labiba Bahrain.

The joint venture has been established to extend the artificial intelligence solutions specialised in conversational interface and voice-user interface (VUI) for Fintech firms in the local and regional market, said a statement from the company.

The Bahrain FinTech Bay (BFB) is a part of FinTech Consortium, a FinTech Incubator working with partners and stakeholders to co-incubate insightful, impactful, and sustainable FinTech initiatives, it said.

With its global network of locations in New York (US), Singapore, and now Bahrain, BFB works closely with its counterparts to promote collaboration and shared innovation.

Through its subsidiary FinTech Consortium Bahrain, they have been appointed as the operator and ecosystem builder of Bahrain FinTech Bay.

With a focus on the Arabic language, Labiba is dedicated to creating machines capable of understanding not just the formal Arabic, but all the different Arabic dialects used by the customers.

The organisation now operates in Jordan, UAE and Bahrain, and the partnership with Bahrain Fintech Bay is certainly a giant step towards the fulfilment of their expansion plans.

Ali Hajjaj, chief executive officer of Labiba, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to work closely with the Bahrain Fintech Bay (BFB) to accelerate the FinTech ecosystem in this region that has a huge potential for the future.”

“This is a great opportunity for us to utilise our experience and expertise to strengthen the fintech landscape in the Middle East and Africa,” he added.
