The Artificial Intelligence Innovation Network (AIIN) will bring together academics, businesses and those using AI across different sectors to tackle global problems like the sustainability of smart cities, the security of financial systems, the sourcing of energy, water and food, and improved diagnostic processes for healthcare.

Organisations including the UK Government’s Cabinet Office, NHS University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, AI healthcare start-up, - a blockchain and AI start-up by former Deepmind members - and global energy and utilities firm Enzen have already joined the AIIN to work out how the burgeoning technology can enhance their operation.
