Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said this week Britain could be the global home of artificial intelligence regulation as he pitched London as a tech hub to industry leaders and urged them to grasp the opportunities and challenges of AI.
He has previously announced £100 million in initial start-up funding for a taskforce responsible for accelerating the UK’s capability in a rapidly-emerging type of AI – on top of £900 million investment into compute technology at Budget.
This will address foundation models, including large language models like ChatGPT and Google Bard, AI systems trained on massive data sets which can be used for a wide range of tasks across the economy, and investment will fund a new government-industry taskforce to ensure sovereign capabilities and broad adoption of safe and reliable foundation models, helping cement the UK’s position as a science and technology superpower by 2030.
