We need to be leading the field

A new independent review sets out ambitious proposals for boosting the UK’s AI industry.

The government has been urged to help the UK become the clear world leader in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – to boost productivity, advance health care, improve services for customers and unlock £630bn for the UK economy.

Experts from industry & academia recently revealed new proposals for how government can work with industry to stay ahead of the competition and grow the UK’s use of AI right across the economy – from smarter scheduling of operations in health care, to hiring on-demand self-driving cars.

The Industrial Strategy Green Paper, published in January 2017, identified AI as a major, high-potential opportunity for the UK to build a word-leading future sector of our economy.
