    [United Kingdom] National AI Strategy

    Presented to Parliament by the United Kingdom’s Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport by Command of Her Majesty (September 21, 2021)

    Guidance Extract – Introductory Quote

    This is the age of artificial intelligence. Whether we know it or not, we all interact with AI every day – whether it’s in our social media feeds and smart speakers, or on our online banking. AI, and the data that fuels our algorithms, help protect us from fraud and diagnose serious illness. And this technology is evolving every day.

    We’ve got to make sure we keep up with the pace of change. The UK is already a world leader in AI, as the home of trailblazing pioneers like Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace and with our strong history of research excellence. This Strategy outlines our vision for how the UK can maintain and build on its position as other countries also race to deliver their own economic and technological transformations.

    The challenge now for the UK is to fully unlock the power of AI and data-driven technologies, to build on our early leadership and legacy, and to look forward to the opportunities of this coming decade.

    This National AI Strategy will signal to the world our intention to build the most pro-innovation regulatory environment in the world; to drive prosperity across the UK and ensure everyone can benefit from AI; and to apply AI to help solve global challenges like climate change.

    AI will be central to how we drive growth and enrich lives, and the vision set out in our strategy will help us achieve both of those vital goals.

    Nadine Dorries MP – Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

    Guidance Extract – Introduction

    Artificial Intelligence technologies (AI) offer the potential to transform the UK’s economic landscape and improve people’s lives across the country, transforming industries and delivering first-class public services.

    AI may be one of the most important innovations in human history, and the government believes it is critical to both our economic and national security that the UK prepares for the opportunities AI brings, and that the country is at the forefront of solving the complex challenges posed by increased use of AI.

    This country has a long and exceptional history in AI – from Alan Turing’s early work through to DeepMind’s recent pioneering discoveries. In terms of AI startups and scaleups, private capital invested, and conference papers submitted, the UK sits in the top tier of AI nations globally. The UK ranked third in the world for private investment into AI companies in 2020, behind only the USA and China.

    The National AI Strategy builds on the UK’s current strengths and represents the start of a step-change for AI in the UK, recognizing that maximizing the potential of AI will increase resilience, productivity, growth, and innovation across the private and public sectors. Building on our strengths in AI will take a whole-of-society effort that will span the next decade. This is a top-level economic, security, health, and wellbeing priority. The UK government sees being competitive in AI as vital to our national ambitions on regional prosperity and for shared global challenges such as net-zero, health resilience, and environmental sustainability. AI capability is therefore vital for the UK’s international influence as a global science superpower.

    The National AI Strategy for the United Kingdom will prepare the UK for the next ten years, and is built on three assumptions about the coming decade:

    • The key drivers of progress, discovery, and strategic advantage in AI are access to people, data, compute and finance – all of which face huge global competition;
    • AI will become mainstream in much of the economy and action will be required to ensure every sector and region of the UK benefit from this transition;
    • Our governance and regulatory regimes will need to keep pace with the fast-changing demands of AI, maximizing growth and competition, driving UK excellence in innovation, and protecting the safety, security, choices, and rights of our citizens.

    This document sets out the UK’s strategic intent at a level intended to guide action over the next ten years, recognizing that AI is a fast-moving and dynamic area.
