The United Arab Emirates (the UAE) are clearly trying to turn into a leading technological hub. The UAE has recently announced its national technology and innovation strategy that has been compared to a Fourth Industrial Revolution, as reported by the World Economic Forum. Here are three ways they are putting words into reality:

1. Building the first blockchain city

The UAE has invested a lot of time and efforts into exploring blockchain technology and the way it can be used to deliver governmental services. Some of the early adopters of blockchain technology include visa applications, bill payments, license renewals, and others. At the same time, the country launches accelerators and competition aimed at pushing the sector to utilize blockchain technology.

2. The first Minister of AI

The UAE has reportedly appointed the first Minister of artificial intelligence or AI. Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama is one of the six new ministers. His role is to help the country become more prepared for the challenges of artificial intelligence, as he stated.

3. Robocops are coming

Dubai has tested the introduction of a robotic policeman. The robot can issue fines, feed video back to base and identify people through facial recognition. Learn more about the robot police officer in the video.

According to the World Economic Forum`s report, Dubai`s strategy will see 25% of all positions taken by robots by 2030.

This list is by no means extensive, as the UAE also invests in flying taxis, pneumatic trains, and 3D printers, among other technologies. It looks like they are on the way to realize their ambitious strategy. Are you ready for the new Industrial Revolution?
