After Brexit, the UK economy suffered from unforeseen situations. COVID-19 further caused turbulence in the overall growth of economies world wide and thus impacted the UK too. This is the right time for young talent, where the UK has a chance to significantly leverage AI for economic growth. By strategically adopting AI across industries, from automating tasks to personalizing services, businesses can boost productivity and efficiency. This can lead to increased innovation, competitiveness in global markets, and the creation of new AI-powered industries. However, to fully reap these benefits, the UK needs to invest in infrastructure, education, and ethical frameworks to ensure responsible AI development and workforce adaptation. This presentation will help BCS young talent and professionals explore horizons through research and develop innovative solutions to support the UK economy.
