Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman paid a visit to Boston that lasted several hours on Saturday before heading to New York, as part of his tour of the United States.
In Boston, Prince Mohammed met with the heads of universities and Saudi researchers and visited institutions developing artificial intelligence and technology, notably the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Four agreements were signed between MIT, Aramco, SABIC, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology.
The signing of these scientific and technological cooperation agreements took place on the sidelines of the Innovation to Impact Forum held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The most prominent of these agreements was a partnership between MIT and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology to collaborate on a new Saudi project named "Future Destination." The partnership includes joint agreements on research, student exchanges and entrepreneurship.
The Saudi Crown Prince also visited the Mechatronics Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in addition to the IBM Watson Health center.
Prince Mohammed bin Salman began a three-week visit to the United States last Tuesday and met on the first day with US President Donald Trump.
The visit aims to strengthen cooperation with the United States and seek new investment opportunities.
