Turing response to National Infrastructure Commission report: Data for the public good

Today the National Infrastructure Commission published the report: Data for the public good, which looks at how AI and other new technologies could transform the UK’s infrastructure and recommends The Alan Turing Institute’s involvement.

In response to the report’s publication Sir Alan Wilson, Turing CEO said:

“There is a new utility, so crucial to the efficient functioning of modern life that we could not do without it: data. Like any major system such as transport, housing or telecoms, data requires its own infrastructure, to collect it, store it and derive knowledge and value from it.

“The NIC data report provides a welcome recognition of the connections between data-driven technologies and major infrastructure systems. We look forward to working with the NIC to take forward the recommendations in their report and build on the exciting potential in this space.”
