Following the publication of the Industrial Strategy, and the Independent Review into Growing the UK’s Artificial Intelligence industry, this event will provide an opportunity to discuss and debate the next steps for creating a policy framework which delivers investment and supports innovation.
With the Chancellor of the Exchequer Phillip Hammond MP announcing £75 million of investment in AI at his most recent budget speech, attendees will have the opportunity to consider priorities for funding and investment for AI research, skills and start-up’s in order to ensure the UK can lead the world in the development and commercialisation of AI technologies.
Time will be allocated to analysing how the UK can exploit the benefits of artificial intelligence and machine learning for society and the wider economy, and the challenges and opportunities for skills, employment, governance and accountability. Key stakeholders and industry leaders will share the latest use cases and best practice to demonstrate the transformative opportunities of AI, allay public fears about AI and machine learning and consider how existing regulatory frameworks might need to develop to keep pace with emerging technological developments.
Delegates will examine how key sectors are set to gain from AI, how to overcome deployment barriers, minimising the risk of digital exclusion in a highly automated economy and opportunities for overcoming the negative narrative of AI and machine learning to highlight the opportunities for growth, increased productivity, efficiency and innovation.
