The UK government and regulators have taken several steps to implement a 10-year strategy published last year outlining the government’s pro-innovation national approach to AI.

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.

The UK government is clearly keen to recognise the opportunities that AI offers, particularly in a post-Brexit world in which the UK has more flexibility to position itself as a pro-innovation regulatory environment and a favourable place to live and work with AI. The Report provides a roadmap of future regulatory developments, and context for companies seeking to understand the practical impacts of this rapidly developing and far-reaching landscape.
