UK to invest £900m in supercomputer in bid to build own ‘BritGPT’

UK government to invest in supercomputers with AI as part of the country's technology strategy. A £ has been budgeted to build an exascale computer that would be several times more powerful than the UK's current big computer.

This investment would lead to significant improvements in scientific research, including weather forecasting, climate projections, and the discovery of new drugs while increasing the potential of artificial intelligence.

The government has acknowledged the risks of the UK losing technological advancements and is planning to establish a task force to advance UK sovereignty in technology, including large language models. A £ prize will be awarded every year for groundbreaking AI research.
