techUK welcomes the announcement made today by both the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Jeremy Wright, and the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark  of the members of the UK’s first AI Council. Chaired by Tabitha Goldstaub, co-founder of CognitionX, the membership of the AI Council includes leading figures of the UK’s AI, academic and civil society community, as well as industry representatives from companies including Sage, Microsoft, Deepmind, Mastercard, Amazon and Ocado.

Commenting on the announcement, Sue Daley, techUK’s Associate Director of Technology and Innovation, said:

“Realising the full potential of AI is not something that government, industry, academia or civil society can do alone. Working together is how we will make the UK AI ready and increase the adoption and use of AI technologies that can make a real difference to people’s lives. That’s why today’s announcement of the AI Council members is another important step forward. The Council has a key role to play in ensuring the UK government has access to the insights, input and expertise we need to remain a world leader in AI. techUK looks forward to working with the Council to drive the development and adoption of AI in a way that benefits everyone across society.”
