Nick Jennnigs, Vice-Provost for Research & Enterprise at Imperial College London – a key partner with the AI summit, shares, ” With the AI Summit in particular, we’re delighted it’s in London. AI is strong in this country and particularly in London. I think that bringing people together and talking about hte reality behind the hype, and being clear about where we are, what we can do, and what we can’t or shouldn’t do, is really important. It’s at forums like this where that debate is really starting to emerge.”
