It's great to see global leaders from the Middle East continuing to embrace the Digital Revolution.
When you think of countries that spearhead innovation and digital transformation, Jordan isn't one of the first names that would pop into your head, but this just shows how the Digital Revolution shows no slowing down and has no limits in terms of its geographical reach.
At the Fourth Knowledge Summit this week some of the most influential leaders in the Middle East came together to talk all things Digital, including HH Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai.
“The digital revolution is a competitive and collaborative campaign between man and machine,” he said. Al Mulki referred to the revolution as one that will have an inevitable impact on every country in the world and described it as an opportunity for all nations to develop their knowledge and expertise in order to focus on human development, technological changes and sustainability. “The question is, are we ready to absorb [the impact] and use it for the development of our countries?,” he asked the audience. Referring to digital and technological developments such as the use of drones, autonomous cars and 3D printers, Al Mulki informed that the main aim of the digital revolution is to empower humans.
