The UK government published its National AI Strategy in mid-September, billed as a “ten-year plan to make Britain a global AI superpower”. Despite the hype, the strategy has so far attracted curiously little comment and interest from the mainstream media. This is a cause for concern because if the government’s proposals bear fruit, they will dramatically change UK society and the lives of UK Citizens. They will also place military applications of AI at the centre of the UK’s AI sector.
