UK government to unleash the power of AI with its new strategy

The UK government aims to develop and deliver a new artificial intelligence (AI) strategy that is both globally ambitious and socially inclusive.

The new AI strategy will focus on three points: the growth of the economy through the widespread use of AI technologies; ethical, safe, and trustworthy development of responsible AI; and resilience in the face of change through an emphasis on skills, talent, and research and development (R&D).

Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “Unleashing the power of AI is a top priority in our plan to be the most pro-tech government ever. The UK is already a world leader in this revolutionary technology and the new AI Strategy will help us seize its full potential - from creating new jobs and improving productivity to tackling climate change and delivering better public services.”

UK’s AI Council and Office for AI have begun engaging with the AI ecosystem according to the AI Council’s Roadmap. This engagement will continue to set in shape the National AI Strategy.

Tabitha Goldstaub, co-founder of CognitionX, AI Council Chair and AI Business Champion said: “The Council is thrilled that the key recommendation of the AI Roadmap has been taken forward. We are committed to working with the Office for AI to ensure that the wider AI Ecosystem is represented in the next phase and together ensure the UK economy and society benefits from Artificial Intelligence.”
