    Sue Daley, Head of Cloud, Data Analytics and AI, welcomes you to techUK’s AI week

#AIreadyAll this week we are shining a light on the opportunities and benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the UK and the steps that need to be taken to make UK organisations and society ready to realise the full benefits of AI. 

Throughout this week we will be sharing guest blogs, videos and podcast interviews with AI thought leaders, press articles and daily tweets exploring what an AI driven UK might look like and how we get there. We are also holding a joint techUK AI and cyber security session on Tuesday 24 April, with speakers from Splunk and Rackspace. Spaces are still free for this session so click here to come along.

During AI week, techUK will also be launching techUK’s AI Leaders Campaign aimed at promoting UK leaders in AI. Every month techUK will promote an individual that is helping organisations across both the public and private sector to realise the economic benefits and social power of AI technologies. Keep a look out this week to see who will be techUK’s first AI Leader!
