    Over the last year, the performance of the United Kingdom’s digital tech sector has been world-leading, with British firms attracting more capital than any other European country. Our great strength in technology and innovation, built on the UK’s excellence in R&D and creative thinking, is demonstrated by the breadth of tech activity right across the country, and the powerful networks being forged by the next generation of entrepreneurs.

    As this 2018 Tech Nation Report makes clear, the digital tech sector makes an essential contribution to local economies in our towns and cities. Clusters built around AI, machine learning, cyber security and big data industries are supporting growth, jobs and productivity in communities large and small. Ambitious people are brought together by a passion for new technologies and together become pioneers.

    London: The AI Growth Capital of Europe

    CognitionX

    CognitionX was commissioned by the Mayor of London to map AI innovation across London and identify the capital’s unique strengths as a global hub of Artificial Intelligence. The findings of this research will inform the actions the Mayor will take to support the future growth of AI across different industries to drive innovation, productivity and growth.

    AI is a huge opportunity. As the AI growth capital of Europe, London is well placed to maximise the substantial economic benefits of AI over the long term.

    With 758 companies, 645 of which have a London headquarters, London has an AI supplier base that is double the size of Paris and Berlin combined. London has stronger global positions in AI in its leading industries, especially finance, insurance, and law. The rate of new AI supplier formation in London is 42% per annum, significantly faster than the global rate of 24% per annum.

    London’s skilled talent pool provides the capital’s AI suppliers and their customers with a pipeline of technical and entrepreneurial talent. London’s open, tolerant and multicultural society is a powerful draw for AI founders, talent and investors who see the city as a great place to live and work. This is reflected in the fact that 43% of London AI suppliers have a non-UK national as a founder. Community and peer support for London’s start-up community are the best in Europe and London’s founders enjoy strong connections with international entrepreneurs, second only to Silicon Valley.
