Dubai goes smarter as it embraces artificial intelligence (AI), adapts new technologies and begins implementing blockchain strategies.

Last week, U.A.E.’s Vice President and Prime Minister Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum launched the Emirates Blockchain Strategy 2021 that aims to get 50% of government transactions to adopt the blockchain platform over the next three years- a step that will help the government to save around $3 billion, and 398 million printed documents with 77 million work hours annually.

“Adaptation to advanced technologies and utilizing them in serving society and enhancing the efficiency of government performance is a firmly established approach adopted by the U.A.E.,” said Shaikh Mohammad.

The Gulf city is also seeking to be safer along with being smarter as it aims to use artificial intelligence to police the emirate.
