Robotics in the GCC seem to be a hot topic these days, especially after our neighbors in Dubai announced the debut of some robo-cops...not the 90s classic type sadly. Qatar, not to be outdone, is also fostering a domestic robotics industry at Education City, the location of today's podcast. Tune in to learn about how one Texas A&M alum is fostering its growth and got inspired by Hollywood.
