#TechisGREAT

We’re going to the World Summit AI in Amsterdam

With 1 new AI related company launched every seven days, the UK is a hotbed of innovation with a market that is forecast to grow significantly in the coming years, to roughly £650 billion by 2025. London is already Europe’s number 1 hub for AI companies, and 50% of European AI companies are from the UK.

Leading corporates, investors, universities and entrepreneurs have already made significant investments in the UK to scale their AI activities. Meet them at our side-event, where you’ll be able to connect with the main movers and shakers from both sides of the channel!

This side-event will be hosted by the Permanent Secretary of the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Skills, Mr. Alex Chisholm, and the UK Ambassador to the Netherlands, Mr. Peter Wilson.

AI is one of the pillars of our Industrial Strategy

We’re putting the UK at the forefront of the AI and data revolution

Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are general purpose technologies already starting to transform the global economy. They can be seen as new industries in their own right, but they are also transforming business models across many sectors as they deploy vast datasets to identify better ways of doing complex tasks – from helping doctors diagnose medical conditions more effectively to allowing people to communicate across the globe using instantaneous speech recognition and translation software. 

Embedding AI across the UK will create thousands of good quality jobs and drive economic growth. Learn more about these efforts from the UK’s Office for Artificial Intelligence; they’ll be joining us at the WSAI.
