The UK’s AI Strategy: Where Are We Now?

September 22, 2022

The UK’s AI Strategy: Where Are We Now?
Last year, the UK Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) published its 10- year National AI Strategy for the regulation and promotion of artificial intelligence (AI) in the UK (Report). DCMS seeks to build “the most pro-innovation regulatory environment in the world” and vows to make the UK the “best place to live and work with AI” over the next decade. Since then, the UK government and regulators have taken various steps towards this aim, with the Report anticipating a large number of AI-centric publications and consultations. Some key examples (and their latest status) are summarised below, including a policy paper and white paper on a pro-innovation national position on governing and regulating AI, an Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) consultation on the beta version of its AI and data protection risk toolkit, and a consultation on copyright and patents for AI through the UK Intellectual Property
Office (IPO).

AI in Planning

whitePaper | September 17, 2022

As stated in the American Planning Association’s 2022 Trend Report for Planners, over centuries, professions have evolved with changing environments, shifting eras, new challenges, societal shifts, and technological innovations. While some professions have become obsolete or or were replaced by technology, others have adapted or readjusted and stayed relevant in an ever-changing world. What is different today is the pace of change, which requires faster, even proactive, adjustments—including new tools, processes, and skills.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence in a brave new world

whitePaper | December 22, 2022

Machine learning, one of the key building blocks of AI, has been a part of the technological world since the 1950s, when the earliest programmers asked computers to make sense of large sets of data. Programmers have increasingly refined the ability of machines to study data in order to detect patterns that allow computers to then organise information, identify relationships, make predictions and detect anomalies. Today, modern applications of AI have already given us self-driving cars and virtual assistants and have helped us detect fraud and manage resources like electricity more efficiently. Sectors as diverse as retail, sports, banking, manufacturing and healthcare have all found applications for machine learning and AI.

WHY MACHINE LEARNING IS THE FUTURE OFPREDICTIVE AND INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE

whitePaper | July 10, 2020

There’s no arguing that preventing failures and accidents is critical for industry. Unexpected incidents can grind operations to a halt for extended periods of time and necessitate expensive repairs. Just 12 hours of downtime for an oil production platform could cost six to eight million dollars in lost production opportunity alone. A single day of grounding for a plane costs roughly four to five million dollars. Because of these disruptions, industrial sectors are always on the lookout for newer, better maintenance methods, and the approach on everyone’s lips right now is predictive maintenance. While everyone agrees on the name, there is less consensus on what it means or how to implement it. But to truly unlock the potential of predictive maintenance, it needs to be paired with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
