Middle East AI News is a weekly news digest covering artificial intelligence news from across the region.


Good morning,
Welcome to this week’s edition of Middle East AI News!
ADQ (previously Abu Dhabi Holding Company) has been confirmed as the Abu Dhabi entity behind the $300 million India-focused AI fund established by Falcon Edge Capital earlier this year (see Middle East AI News 20 Feb). ADQ announced the new fund this week, which targets emerging tech startups. Funding is contingent on each startup setting up in Masdar City.
Other than the region’s continued buying spree on AI and robotics in the fight against Covid-19, two UAE universities have announced new AI degree programmes for the 2020-2021 academic year. Scroll down for these stories and more.
Have a great weekend!
