At Westminster Insight's UK Artificial Intelligence Digital Conference, we will be discussing the impact this strategy is expected to have on the UK's AI Ecosystem. Understand the opportunities this creates for a diverse range of regions, sectors and industries.

You will hear from experts in the private and public sector, including a joint opening keynote presentation from The Office of Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence Council, discussing the next steps for the country’s AI strategy, and what UK businesses and institutions stand to gain.

We will focus on three key areas - policy, ethics and innovation, and showcase practical case studies highlighting the latest innovations in AI technology:


  • Our ethics panel will provide practical advice on how to implement AI technologies to the highest ethical standards. With speakers from Luminate, Faculty, and The Chartered Institute for IT, we will address data privacy, accountability, and bias when creating a long-term, AI governance framework.
  • Hear from The Alan Turing Institute and Women Leading in AI on how to improve both high-level and general AI literacy, and strategies to attract and retain a diverse range of talent
  • Rolls Royce and Hertfordshire Council will share how AI technology has been adopted and used to improve customer service, deliver smarter services, and reduce costs.
