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!
Announced yesterday, Mubadala Capital, the asset management arm of Mubadala, has co-led a $100 million investment in San Francisco-based People.ai. This falls in line with the state investor’s ever-increasing focus on tech-related investments.
Meanwhile, a team from the Emirates ICT Innovation Center has won two awards in Computing UK’s 2021 AI and Machine Learning Awards; Dubai’s Rental Disputes Centre plans to use AI to process legal cases; and Expo 2020 Dubai has appointed an official drone services partner.
In other Expo 2020 news, the first of three robot mascots has arrived in Dubai! Scroll down for these stories and more.
Lastly, I’m going to recommend two tech interviews that I enjoyed listening to this week:
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
