With the UK professing a global digital outlook, its strength in artificial intelligence (AI) reflects its ability to compete confidently on the world stage, so it is important to analyze whether the fundamentals are in place for the UK to go even further and take a leading position.

The National AI Strategy was unveiled in September 2021, six months after the AI Council published its AI roadmap report that outlined 16 recommendations to help develop the UK’s strategic direction for AI. The AI Council, an independent expert committee, has members from industry, the public sector and academia, and works to support the growth of AI in the UK.

The National AI Strategy outlines a 10-year plan that represents a step-change for AI in the UK. It recognizes that maximizing AI’s potential will increase resilience, productivity, growth and innovation in the private and public sectors

Boston Global Forum (BGF), Club de Madrid and AI World Society (AIWS) propose an initiative: establishing a Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG). This is a part of Social Contract for the AI Age, Framework for AI International Accord, BGF Conference of July 1st, 2020, and the book Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment.
