UAE Tech Podcast is an exploration on how technology is merging with and reshaping government in the United Arab Emirates.
A little understood but fundamental transition is taking place across a series of Emirates first established less than fifty years ago, in 1971.
It’s here that the center of technological gravity is shifting from the private sector to a hybrid relationship involving industrialists, entrepreneurs, diplomats, policymakers, creatives and citizens.
It’s also here that signs of a Fourth Industrial Revolution are emerging.
In this series John Lillywhite talks with leaders from across the UAE in an effort to map these macro trends, and probe how innovations in big data, network science and digitalisation are not simply revolutionising government, but could - one day - play a role in influencing the systems that power global civilization itself.

Danish Farhan describes himself as someone who is “building nations with stories.” His personal story, and the story of Xische and Co, the company he founded as a nineteen year old, are intimately connected to several of the trends taking place in the UAE right now. Danish and his team have been directly involved in everything from Smart City Planning, to the UAE’s global blockchain council, it’s Artificial Intelligence Strategy, as well as projects that involve auditing happiness or collaborating with a government backed future technology accelerator. As such, Danish is the perfect person to introduce and provide an overview to how government and technology are merging inside the UAE, at the same time as influencing the rest of the world. UAE Tech Podcast is an exploration on how technology is merging with and reshaping government in the United Arab Emirates.
