Good morning,
Here’s your weekly roundup of Middle East AI News!
A few days after announcing the restructuring of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and the formation of a new Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has approved the board and 41-seat advisory council of the new digital chamber. Board members and advisory council members include some of the city’s most prominent business, investment and technology leaders.
In Saudi news, organisers have confirmed the dates of the 5th anniversary edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII), which will take place in Riyadh on 26-28 October 2021. Meanwhile, although as yet unannounced, it seems that the second edition of the Global AI Summit, organised by the Saudi Data & AI Authority (SDAIA), is now scheduled for 15-16 September.
