Good morning!
Here’s your weekly roundup of Middle East AI News!
Lots of news to share this week and most of it comes from the UAE. This includes the new Dubai drone law that was announced on Saturday, paving the way for urban air mobility services.
Could Dubai’s new drone law be the big break the drone delivery industry has been waiting for? Drone delivery is being trialed all over the world, but regulation has lagged and commercial services keep getting postponed. If the implementation goes well, the new law could position Dubai as a hub for the drone industry.
You’ll find a number of stories on Dubai’s drone law below. You are also welcome to download my 14 page business briefing on the subject here.
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
