Minister for Technology and the Digital Economy Chris Philp has delivered a speech at AI UK about the role data and artificial intelligence will play driving innovation and growth. As part of the wide ranging speech, Chris Philp talked about the £20 million in funding being made available to "support exceptional AI researchers to advance AI through world-leading programmes of research." 

In related news, Harvard Business Review has published an article outlining the importance of getting all employees on-board with AI-based data systems deployments or risk them failing to get off the ground.

Meanwhile, consumer and human rights group European Digital Rights (EDRi) warn that the EU AI Act needs clear safeguards for using AI systems in military and security situations.
