#AI and the public sector 

Recognising AI’s potential, the government’s Industrial Strategy White Paper placed AI and Data as one of four Grand Challenges, supported by up to £950m in the AI Sector Deal.

The government has set up three new bodies to support the use of AI, build the right infrastructure and facilitate public and private sector adoption of these technologies.

These three new bodies are the:

  • AI Council an expert committee of independent members providing high-level leadership on implementing the AI Sector Deal
  • Office for AI which works with industry, academia and the third sector to coordinate and oversee the implementation of the UK’s AI strategy
  • Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation which identifies the measures needed to make sure the development of AI is safe, ethical and innovative
