We want AI to be a force for good, transforming every area of our lives from healthcare to the workplace.

AI open letter to UK Government and Industry

AI is not an existential threat to humanity; it will be a transformative force for good if we get critical decisions about its development and use right.

The UK can help lead the way in setting professional and technical standards in AI roles, supported by a robust code of conduct, international collaboration and fully resourced regulation.

By doing so, "Coded in Britain" can become a global byword for high-quality, ethical, inclusive AI.
