Welcome to techUK AI Week
Katherine Mayes, Cloud, Data Analytics and AI Programme Manager, welcomes you to techUK's AI week.
Today marks the beginning of techUK’s AI Week – highlighting the growing opportunities and benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for both the UK economy and society. Throughout the week techUK will be bringing you news, views and insights from the technology sector on how UK organisations are using AI to revolutionise business productivity and transform people’s lives. Throughout the week we will provide commentary on the next steps needed to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of the artificial intelligence and data revolution. We will be sharing guest blogs and podcast interviews, press articles and daily tweets reflecting the current AI environment in the UK and what this may look like in the future.
Over the coming days, our members and other industry experts will be contributing blogs on AI in four key areas:
- Tuesday - Healthcare
- Wednesday - Infrastructure
- Thursday - Policing and crime
- Friday - Cybersecurity
During AI week, techUK will also further its ongoing AI Leaders Campaign - aimed at promoting UK leaders in AI - with a new leader under the spotlight this month.
