techUK’s head of cloud, data analytics and AI Sue Daley welcomed the appointments made today:
“This is another important step forward in the establishment of the Centre we hope will play an important role in ensuring the UK is world leading in the development and use of responsible tech. To do that there is a real need to build the knowledge, capability and capacity needed to ensure that AI is developed and used in a way that is beneficial and ethical. The CDEI will have a vital role to play in supporting this and techUK is pleased to see a strong mix of backgrounds and world-leading expertise on the Board. The success of the Centre’s work will depend on industry being properly engaged. This is why techUK has suggested the creation of an industry expert working group that could provide direct input, advice and technical expertise to support the Centre’s Chair and Board as it begins its important work.”
