RAE: All sectors of the economy stand to benefit from AI

last modified Oct 30, 2017 05:50 PM
The Royal Academy of Engineering welcomes the publication of "Growing the artificial intelligence industry in the UK", an independent review by Professor Dame Wendy Hall DBE FREng FRS (Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton) and Jérôme Pesenti (CEO of Benevolent Tech).

 

Philip Greenish CBE, Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Engineering, says:

“All sectors of the UK economy stand to benefit from artificial intelligence in the future, and the UK has the potential to become a world leader in the application of this technology. As well as its potential to support specific tasks such as providing trustworthy healthcare advice and enabling teachers to develop personalised education programmes for students, the use of AI may help to tackle some of the significant structural and infrastructure challenges facing society.

The proposals set out in the review led by Academy Fellow Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti set out a positive route to maximising the value of artificial intelligence in this country, and we look forward to working with government and industry to make them a reality."
