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!
A number of commercial news stories in this week’s newsletter, with two significant new partnerships announced in the region’s smart cities sector. Meanwhile, Sharjah Police publicises its use of facial recognition in police drones.
Scroll to the end of the newsletter for a couple of interesting articles on drones in the defence sector. I can also recommend the overview on the UAE’s national artificial intelligence strategy delivered by the country’s Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, H.E. Omar Sultan AlOlama (14 min, video).
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
