However, for the purposes of identifying support for and development in the sector, it is useful to treat them as a group.</p><p>Government welcomes the independent review of Artificial Intelligence, “Growing the Artificial Intelligence Industry in the UK”, published on 15 October. The report highlights how AI can boost UK productivity, and has the potential to add £630 billion to the UK economy by 2035.</p><p>The Industrial Strategy Green Paper, published in January, also identified AI as a major, high-potential opportunity for the UK to build a word-leading future sector of our economy.</p>
