UK and France Join Hands To Bolster Tech & AI Links


A joint strategy between the UK and France includes plans for a future digital conference, where experts from both countries will come together and share knowledge and skills on a range of issues such as AI, cyber security and digital skills.

The digital conference this year, will follow the same model as the UK-France Taskforce on Data Innovation, which focused on understanding the potential of big data.

The ties between the two countries have been further strengthened after the launch of an Anglo-French alliance linking Imperial College London and the French National Centre for Scientific Research.

The purpose of that alliance is to strengthen relations in academic subjects underpinning AI.

“The UK and France are strengthening ties in technology and innovation,” explained Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Matt Hancock. “I’m looking forward to leading a cutting-edge digital conference this year which will see our world-leading experts in cyber security, digital skills, artificial intelligence, data and digital government share their talent and knowledge.”

“Both countries benefit when our digital economies are strong and the event will deepen our bonds and foster cross-Channel collaboration between those at the forefront of modern technology,” Hancock added.

“This event is a significant step towards greater collaboration between the British and French tech sectors,” said Julian David, CEO of techUK. “Both countries share similar opportunities and challenges as we build our leading digital economies through technologies like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and cyber security.”
