UK Association for Artificial Intelligence


The AI we create today will impact our lives for decades.  Every scientific revolution brings a myriad of promises and opportunities as well as risks and uncertainties. Who will reap the benefits of the AI revolution? Who will be responsible for AI’s decisions? How to define standards and best practice for AI? How to guard against unethical uses of AI?

The Association for AI is an independent representative body for the UK Artificial Intelligence community. The organisation is for the good of all involved in and affected by the growing importance of AI.

We welcome members from across the whole spectrum of AI, including scientists, developers, entrepreneurs, users, the public, and policy makers. 

A4AI is the home of Responsible, Ethical and Sustainable Artificial Intelligence


Responsible AI respects privacy and individual rights as well as the good* of communities and our society. The people involved in commissioning, creating and using AI are accountable for the results and implications of AI decisions and actions.
