News that caught our attention this week:

US Federal Reserve announces new rate-hike and promises pause.

The recent announcement by the US Federal Reserve to pause further interest rate hikes will bring relief to businesses and consumers in the UAE. The move by the US central bank is expected to have a positive impact on the country's economy, as it will help to keep borrowing costs low and stimulate growth. This news comes as good news for the UAE, which is trying to recover from the economic fallout of the pandemic. With the US Federal Reserve signaling that it will maintain an accommodative monetary policy, businesses and consumers in the UAE can expect to see lower interest rates and increased access to credit, which should help to support economic growth in the months ahead.

Emirates-Etihad deal: You can now fly to Dubai and return via Abu Dhabi on one ticket

Etihad Airways and Emirates are set to offer their passengers the ability to fly on the same ticket at no additional cost. This move is part of a new partnership between the two UAE-based airlines and is aimed at providing greater convenience and flexibility to customers. Under the new agreement, passengers will be able to book connecting flights on both airlines through either company's website, call center, or travel agents.

A.I. Godfather steps down to take a more advisory role

Geoffrey Hinton, a renowned computer scientist and pioneer of artificial intelligence, has resigned from his position at Google and is now warning about the dangers of machine learning. Hinton, who is often referred to as the "godfather of AI," was one of the key architects of the deep learning algorithms that underpin many of today's most advanced AI systems. In a recent interview, Hinton expressed concern about the increasing use of machine learning in fields such as finance, law enforcement, and healthcare, warning that these systems can be biased, unreliable, and even dangerous in some cases. Hinton believes that the solution to these problems lies in developing more advanced AI systems that can reason, understand, and learn in a more human-like way. Despite his concerns, Hinton remains optimistic about the future of AI and believes that with the right research and development, these technologies can be used to solve some of the world's most pressing problems.
