The Office is a joint unit between Digital & Tech Policy Directorate in Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and the Business Growth Directorate in Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Office will work on cutting edge issues at the intersection of government and technology in collaboration with industry partners and researchers. 
The Office's aim is to establish the UK as a world leader in the responsible, innovative and effective use of AI and it will work across government departments and with external stakeholders, as well cooperate with the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation. 
Four major areas for the Office will be:
 - Access to data;
 - Skills development;
 - Leadership; 
 - Industry adoption. 
Actions in these areas will build on the recommendations of the 2017 AI review 'Growing the Artificial Intelligence Industry in the UK'. 
The Office will address broader questions related to AI, such as its labour market implications.
