Prof. Amal Al-Ghazzawi, Dean of CIC Mass communication, added that the importance of this symposium also comes from the importance of the application itself, when it was launched by the “Alpha Exploration Co” for consumers in the United States, and was embraced by business leaders and celebrities such as Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, and its user base quickly expanded since then, to include young people, politicians, musicians and others.
