will.i.am, the Founder and Chief Executive Office of I.AM+ mentioned that the UAE is at the forefront of AI adoption that’s why it’s at the perfect place for Omega to launch. “We recognize tremendous potential in this region as it holds one of the highest internet penetration levels in the world,” he said.
