AI Strategy


In September 2021, the UK Government published the National AI Strategy. The Strategy is “a ten-year plan to make Britain a global AI superpower”. The three key aims of the Strategy are to invest and plan for the long-term needs of the AI ecosystem, to support the transition to an AI-enabled economy, and to ensure the UK gets the national and international governance of AI technologies right.

On 23 February 2022, the Foundation for Science and Technology held an event to discuss the AI strategy and the next steps for delivering it. The speakers were: Professor Dame Wendy Hall (Regius Professor of Computer Science, University of Southampton); Lord Clement-Jones (House of Lords); Professor Geraint Rees (Vice-Provost AI, University College London); and Professor Tom Rodden (Chief Scientific Adviser, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport). A video recording, presentation slides and speaker audio from the event are available on the FST website at:
