About the council

The AI Think Tank works to demystify, clarify, unify and drive the UK’s agenda on AI.

We’re preparing UK industry for the changes to come, and helping business cut through the sci-fi to find the reality. We’re forging links between subject matter experts, vendors and our members, so everyone can access trusted sources of truth.

And we’re exploring the current state of AI to find the people who are getting things right and the organisations worth emulating.
