You may be aware the government recently launched its review on artificial intelligence (here)

The report, produced by Dame Wendy Hall and Jerome Pesenti, calls for a concerted effort to make the UK one of the best places in the world to develop and deploy AI.

The review presents a series of sensible ideas – among them to expand Masters and PhD places in computer science, establish Data Trusts that would share best practice on how to make use of dormant data, and create an AI Council that would advise firms on how to spot AI investment opportunities.

Please spread the word and have a look if you haven’t already. The Review does what many other studies on AI do not: it presents a compelling and optimistic vision for using AI to boost productivity, raise living standards and tackle our greatest challenges, from combating climate change to managing an ageing society.

You can learn more about AI at our conference coming up on 1st December, more detail here.
