The Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) conducts world-class multidisciplinary computing research that is relevant to the needs of Qatar, the wider Arab region, and the world, leveraging Qatar’s unique historical, linguistic, and cultural heritage. QCRI disseminates the results of this research through community outreach and technology transfer activities.  

QCRI’s Executive Director, Ahmed K. Elmagarmid, discusses the challenges and opportunities facing QCRI as it helps Qatar become the world’s leader in Arabic language technologies and in key areas vital to the global growth of Qatari business and entrepreneurial activity. These areas are critical to Qatar's transition from a carbon-fuel-based economy to a knowledge-based economy.
