A new report by PwC is out this week that looks at the economic impact of artificial intelligence (AI) in the GCC.

According to this latest research AI’s contribution to the Middle East economy will total $320bn by 2030. In the UAE its contribution to GDP will be only just behind the US (113 percent as opposed to 14 percent in America) and ahead of northern Europe, which will be predicted to be 10 percent.

What’s driving these numbers? What are the effects on jobs currently done by humans? Will we see increased leisure time? And what sectors here in the UAE are already employing AI technology?

In this edition of Inside AB, Jeremy Lawrence and Eddie Taylor run through the key take-homes of the report to see what the economy of tomorrow might look like.
