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, Xische & Co: Building Nations With Stories

    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 co-authoring Dubai's Blockchain strategy to 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.

    Promo: John McAfee on the DeLorean, Satoshi Nakamoto & the End of Government

    UAE Tech is an exploration on how technology is merging with government in the United Arab Emirates.

    In this promo edition we’re really lucky to have the inimitable John McAfee help us launch the series. In America, the UK and CommonWealth John is a household name.

    For our listeners in the Middle East, John is the mind behind the first ever commercial antivirus software. McAffee antivirus sold to Intel in 2011 in a deal valued at $7.68 billion dollars.

    In the intervening years, John McAfee has become known for a libertarian political position in part driven by the possibilities of technology. His interests in cybersecurity, freedom from government interference and network science have drawn him towards Bitcoin, the blockchain and Satoshi Nakamoto’s famous white paper on a peer to peer electronic cash system.

    This conversation with McAffee is not UAE specific, but it does highlight two themes at the center of this series. The first is how emerging technologies like cryptocurrency are breaking down national borders and established financial and political systems.

    The second is how governments themselves are responding to co-opt or merge with these very same technologies.
