The Alan Turing Institute


AI UK is the UK’s national showcase of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science research and collaboration. Hosted by The Alan Turing Institute, AI UK 2022 explored how AI and data science could be used to solve real-world challenges. Our unique and diverse programme was thematically structured around the UK's National AI Strategy, with a broad range of interactive content including digital twins, algorithmic bias and AI ethics. AI UK 2022, was a virtual event broadcast from London, which provided world-class insights from academia, industry and the public sector across four stages.

This has to be the best AI-focused event I've attended, thank you to all who worked to put it together. The event highlights that we all have a lot to do to ensure that the AI sector in the UK thrives, but we are doing a lot of work already and the country is really trying to take a leading role, which is fantastic to see.

Besides the motivation, excitement and hope from all the inspirational speakers, AI UK has also re-confirmed my decision to pivot my career and I'm very much looking forward to a role in data science for the public good!

I wanted to congratulate the AI UK team for the good level of representation in the event. As a mature woman PhD student from a minoritised community, I could find someone who reflected me in some way in the various panels. Well done!

I found it interesting, engaging and thought-provoking. It was particularly fascinating to hear the illuminating perspectives of speakers from Asia, Africa and the Global South.

One of the most striking aspects of the event was how broad a research area AI is; it was inspiring to see how many different directions one could take. I will continue to recommend the event to people interested in exploring data science further.
