Creating an intelligent world

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is one of Digital Catapult’s core technology layers, establishing ourselves as the go-to centre for AI/ML focused SMEs looking to scale and for other parts of the economy looking to innovate.

While AI and Machine Learning already play a vital role in our lives, its potential to benefit consumers, businesses and governments is huge. With the UK’s position as a world leader in the advancements of the technology, there is a rapidly developing AI/ML ecosystem with fast growing SMEs, high profile acquisitions and leading research institutions.

Digital Catapult is taking the lead in how we can realise this potential, fast-track growth and increase productivity to help accelerate the wider UK economy. Take a look below and get involved in our Hacking Happiness hackathon, Dstl and Swiss Re Pit Stops and the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competition.
