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


Good morning!
Here’s your weekly roundup of Middle East AI News!
Lots of news to share today, although no AI mega-announcement this week, it seems! Khalifa University starts a challenging research project with Lockheed Martin; Amity University Dubai launches its own an AI lab; three UAE teams achieved top 10 rankings in the final of the World Robot Olympiad 2021; and Turkish drones seem to be flying off the shelves!
FYI I’ve also started an AI voiced podcast of my top three Linkedin newsletter stories from the week (I launched a Linkedin version of this newsletter a few weeks ago). You can listen here, although today’s podcast will only be uploaded in a few hours.
Lastly, if you’re not already signed up for the world renowned computer scientist, AI visionary and author Dr. Kai-Fu Lee’s talk at Abu Dhabi’s Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence, it will be streamed live today at 5pm GST / 1pm GMT. He will talk about his new book ‘AI 2041: Ten Visions for our Future’. Register here.
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
