*UKHotViewsExtra* Government announces £54m for "trustworthy" AI research


The Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, Chloe Smith, used her keynote speech on day 3 day of London Tech Week to set out the Government’s plans for a series of measures designed to beef-up the UK’s emerging technology sector (principally AI).

This includes £54m package of investment in AI and data science, delivered to universities through UK Research & Innovation (UKRI); the launch of a new UK Geospatial Strategy (bringing together satellite imaging, AI, and real-time data); and a pilot programme to accelerate new research ventures with industry, philanthropic organisations and the third sector (backed by up to £50m in government funding).
