AI for Services

Transforming the UK Services Sector by stimulating the use of Data and AI

Transforming the UK Services Sector by stimulating the use of Data and AI

Services – including legal, accounting and insurance – account for almost 80% of the UK economy. Financial and professional services alone are worth £190 billion and employ 2.2 million, so it is vital that we ensure these are primed for the future.


The AI for Services network brings together Data and Artificial Intelligence businesses and academics with professionals working in the high value service sectors of legal, accountancy insurance and finance. This initiative is part of the Industrial Strategy Next Generation Services Challenge fund programme.
