The Government does not set targets for the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, the Government has set up several avenues to make sure we are making the most of AI, such as the independent AI Council.

Departments are also required to follow the Technology Code of Practice which includes guidance on the use of emerging technology. Emerging technology should only be used where it meets the users’ needs, and this includes the use of AI.

The Government continues to work with departments to establish what other efficiencies can be realised while also meeting the needs of citizens.
