China-Britain AI Summit 2019 held in London

The UK AI market has accelerated since 2010. In December 2017, the UK had a record 226 AI companies across all stages of development, with 2015 seeing the most significant number of new AI start-up entrants in the market, totaling 49. That’s nearly one a week.

The China-Britain AI Summit 2019 took place in London on 21 June, hoping to illuminate the AI landscape in China and the UK, to identify where the opportunities lie, where the key players reside and to cement global partnerships in the 21st century.

During the event, experts discussed topics including the China-UK AI investment framework, innovation and ethics, public safety, black box and jobs. Bo Ji, Dean of the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, gave a speech about AI 2050 and changes in our lives.

Daley, Head of AI, TechUK said, “The UK has a fast-paced and vibrant AI industry, built on an extended heritage of invention. From the work of Alan Turing in the past to today’s world-leading companies, the UK is leading the charge in AI innovation.”

Syrus Lohrasb, the founder of the China-Britain AI Summit, said, “With the top 4 out of 20 universities around the world, a deep tech pedigree and heritage associated with the British, the UK is perfectly poised to welcome and nurture new research and innovation labs. On the flipside, China and innovation go hand in hand. We are witnessing great government support on both sides. ” (Tianxing Bai)
