Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies are already transforming the global economy. These technologies may use huge datasets to find better ways of completing complex tasks and range from simple process automation to deep Machine Learning. The ability to automate, predict and deliver is at the very heart of digital innovation. However, the rising cost of computation power is a significant barrier for small innovative companies to prosper in this market.
It’s been estimated that AI could add £630bn to the UK economy by 2035. Digital Catapult is supporting UK business to enable them to realise this potential by providing leading-edge computation power facilities and innovation programmes that facilitate collaboration across industry and academia.
The UK Government have identified the AI Grand Challenge as a key part of its Industrial Strategy. Digital Catapult is rapidly expanding its programme to lead the adoption of AI and grow the UK’s machine learning ecosystem.
Digital Catapult is enabling the adoption of AI through our programme, Machine Intelligence Garage.
Firms are being challenged with an increasing burden of legal documentation to manage. Traditional methods seem outdated, as they often rely on manual, labour-intensive contract mining. ContractAI is a collaborative R&D project established to facilitate automated analysis of legal contracts.
Digital Catapult has been helping Rolls-Royce create new service offerings and unlock design, manufacturing and operational efficiencies. This activity has been delivered through agile sprints which helped to identify key challenges that could be resolved with artificial intelligence and related technologies.
