UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) has announced four regional workshops to seek input to the current UKRI Review of Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is anticipated to result in a UKRI strategy for supporting AI research and innovation in the UK.

The workshops, which will take place in May 2019, are designed to seek input from a broad set of stakeholders in the AI landscape, including stakeholders from academia, business, and policy. It is anticipated that the workshops will explore the current AI landscape, its future directions, current and anticipated needs and opportunities.

The objectives of the workshop are to work in partnership with stakeholders to:

  • Develop a clear understanding of the current UK AI research and innovation landscape.
  • Explore the areas of opportunity in AI research and innovation in terms of developing new AI technologies, areas of application of AI, and the broad potential socio-economic impacts of AI.
  • Understand the current challenges and barriers to progress in AI research and innovation in the UK, consider how these might be overcome, and the role of different stakeholders within this.

These workshops are not intended to lead directly to a specific funding call, they form part of the UKRI review of the AI landscape to enable future strategic direction setting.

Attendance is free of charge, but travel costs will not be reimbursed. Places are limited and to ensure an optimum mix of attendees, registration will be managed via an expression of interest process.
