The first Minster of A.I.

Their plans are ambitious: not only do they see Dubai achieving a 25% robot police force by 2030; they have also joined the race to place autonomous vehicles on their roads and launch flying taxis in their skies, that’s besides the parallel investments in various Hyperloop projects and a plan to reach Mars.
