"I want to utilise the core skills I develop at Imperial to support and drive the data and AI agenda in Kuwait, and the vision to position the state as a global leader in the elite league of data-driven economies. This ambitious vision runs parallel to the merging field of data and AI in the region and its noticeable expansion that, as we speak, is motivating emerging economies to transition from traditional economic models to data-driven alternatives. This is accompanied by the acquisition of human talent and data technologies, both of which are provided by Imperial in abundance."
