The usage of this technology has already found its way into the healthcare, automotive and defense sectors across the world, to name a few. Dubai is also home to the first 'Humanoid police droid' that scrolls through the streets offering immediate assistance to its citizens and the 10 million guests the country hosts annually.

The show is also being attended by notable industry leaders, such as Dr. Sohail Munir, who serves as an advisor for Emerging Technologies and Digital Transformation in the 'Smart Dubai Govt' initiative.
