IT Pro 20/20: Does the UK stand a chance in the global AI race?

Lofty goals and a rich history in computer science may not be enough to stay relevant

IT Pro 20/20: Does the UK stand a chance in the global AI race?

Welcome to issue 24 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.

Our final issue of 2021 leads with an analysis of the government’s latest plans to keep the UK’s artificial intelligence industry competitive on the international stage. However, with countries like the US and China making it almost impossible for any other nation to match their levels of investment, what can the UK do to stay relevant?

Also in this issue is an early look at IT Pro’s popular cyber security horror stories roundup, which recounts all the worst examples of data leaks, breaches, and terrible cyber security practices from across our industry in 2021.

From all of us at IT Pro, we hope you enjoy the holiday season and wish you the very best for the New Year.
