This week, techUK is focusing on promoting the opportunities and benefits of Artificial Intelligence to the UK.

All this week, techUK will be bringing you news, views and insights from the technology sector on the value and opportunities of AI to UK organisations across both the public and private sector. We will be sharing guest blogs and podcast interviews with AI thought leaders, press articles and daily tweets exploring what an AI driven UK might look like and how do we get there.

New technologies such as predictive data analytics, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have the potential to become significant drivers of change across the UK economy and society. But it is important that the UK economy and society is ready and able to take advantage, today and in the near future, of these evolving technologies.

We have a packed agenda for the week and this page will be updated daily to bring you the latest comments from the technology sector. Why not follow the conversation on twitter too with @techUK and #AIfuture
