Watch the #techUKtalks session on AI Competitiveness in the UK from London Tech Week here

This year at London Tech Week, techUK returned with its online series #techUKTalks, a series of conversations with UK tech leaders exploring the key digital technologies that are transformational for the UK economy.

This techUK talks session outlines Government’s new UK AI Strategy and provides some initial reactions from industry. The panellists discuss some of the greatest, recent AI accomplishments to take place in the UK, such as the launch of NVIDIA’s Cambridge-1 and Deepmind’s ground breaking research on protein-folding, as well as unpacking some of the biggest challenges we face when it comes to AI adoption in the UK. During the final part of the webinar, panellists outline the necessary next steps to take forward and operationalise the strategy; helping to ensure the UK remains a global AI superpower.
