Countries across the world are understanding that they can take advantage of the tremendous transformation presented by AI and cognitive technologies and position themselves for global competitiveness in the future. As a result, countries are coming up with their own unique AI strategies. In this episode of the AI Today podcast hosts Kathleen Walch and Ron Schmelzer interview Albert King, Chief Data Officer of the Scottish Government to discuss the Scottish AI strategy that was published in March 2021. The goal of this strategy is to have Scotland become a leader in the development and use of trustworthy, ethical, and inclusive AI and Albert discusses their plans for how to accomplish this.
Albert will also be sharing this plan in greater detail at the December 2021 AI in Government virtual presentation.
