Meanwhile, some of you will have noticed that I’ve launched a Linkedin version of Middle East AI News. My Linkedin newsletter differs in two ways from this one 1) you’ll always get this email newsletter first, the Linkedin version will follow later in the morning and 2) I’ll be including a little more comment and context in the Linkedin newsletter. So, this weekly email is best for a quick scan of the news, while the Linkedin version is more of a ‘read’.
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
