Digital Authority? Already a reality in the UAE
Although the UAE imposed strict restrictions at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as mandatory work from home, local business life was only barely affected. The reason being that digitalisation has already been systematically implemented for many years. Currently, nearly all administrative matters can be processed remotely from home or the office. Even the famous Arab hospitality has gone digital. A cute little robot might now be serving you beverages, which are typically offered to visitors to government offices, while undergoing the obligatory medical test. It will – probably – take a while until this robotic employee also takes your blood sample.
