The award is an evidence of the successful PACI's efforts in developing and using advanced technology such as (Machine Learning) and (Artificial Intelligence), said Al-Asousi in a phone call with KUNA.

The efforts of Kuwaiti expertise in this field helped in gaining this award which will motivate other governmental sectors to improve services provided to both citizens and residents, Al-Asousi added.

The system facilitates identification of all types of governmental, commercial, service building, and residential units, as well as agricultural, industrial, sports building and others by simply providing the detailed address or part of it or entering the automatic address number.

Al-Asousi affirmed that the application benefits (PACI) and other government agencies due to the expanded scope of maps covered by the program.
