Emirates Post Group and MBZUAI unveil first-in-region AI-generated postage stamps in celebration of UAE’s 52nd Union Day

Emirates Post Group Company (EPG) collaborated with the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) to launch a collection of AI-generated postage stamps commemorating the UAE’s 52nd Union Day.

This issuance, a first in the region, underscores EPG’s commitment to employing advanced technologies to communicate the UAE’s inspiring narrative and preserve the nation’s rich heritage that contributes towards building a brighter future.

MBZUAI’s Department of Computer Vision led this innovative initiative, creating these AI-generated postage stamps serving as digital canvases that portray the UAE’s rich cultural heritage and national aspirations. Depicting various iconic Emirati landmarks, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Burj Khalifa, and symbols to honour the sustainability within the nation, each stamp boasts a resolution of 2048 by 2048 pixels.

Employing a multimodal approach, the MBZUAI team synchronized state-of-the-art text-to-image algorithms, along with MBZUAI's proprietary picture production pipeline. This integration of real-world data including traditional attire, architectural styles, historical elements, and futuristic aspects resulted in watercolour-style artworks that harmoniously blended artistry with technical expertise.

Abdulla Mohammed Alashram, Group CEO of Emirates Post Group, said: “In honour of the UAE’s 52nd Union Day, we collaborated with Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence to issue three unique AI-generated postage stamps as a commitment to advancing technology while preserving cultural legacy. This innovative initiative aimed to commemorate the UAE’s rich past, magnificent present, and ambitions for a promising future”.

MBZUAI’s Vice President of Public Affairs and Alumni Relations, Sultan Al Hajji, said: “The partnership between Emirates Post Group and MBZUAI exemplifies a fusion of technology, artistic expression, and patriotism. At MBZUAI, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of AI and leveraging its potential for meaningful contributions to the cultural narrative of the UAE and the advancement and innovation of society. This initiative paves the path towards transformative development across various platforms and sectors to shape a future where technological prowess aligns with future aspirations.”
