The dynamics of AI entrepreneurship in the UK - 31 October


Clearly AI, machine learning and deep learning are enabling change on an unprecedented scale and markets are responding to this. AI spending is forecasted to grow from $640m in 2016 to $37bn by 2025 (Tractica) and new AI companies are being founded in the UK on almost a weekly basis. Acquisition appetite is high as global corporates compete for private AI companies.

With so much activity and buzz in the markets, which are the key drivers of this change and which are simply distractions? Where are the real game changing shifts occurring? What can businesses learn from investors, entrepreneurs and major companies driving the fourth industrial revolution?

The expert contributors to this session will provide their insights on the key drivers and areas to focus on to ensure you stay agile and able to capitalise on these huge shifts. Questions they will explore include:

  • What are the global VC industry and corporate venture arms doing around AI and AGI, and the wider platform economy?

  • What are the dynamics of AI entrepreneurship in the UK? What are the ‘cold start’ challenges?

  • What does this mean for businesses in terms of investment and acquisition strategy?

  • What is the scale of the resulting entrepreneurial opportunity and how can the UK and global businesses fully capitalise on it?
