The initial package of projects includes a £250 million investment in AI, quantum technologies, and engineering biology, publication of an independent review of the research, development, and innovation organizational landscape, testing different models of funding science, up to £50 million to spur co-investment in science from the private sector and philanthropists, £117 million of existing funding to create hundreds of new PhDs for AI researchers and £8 million to find the next generation of AI leaders around the world, a £50 million uplift to World Class Labs funding, a £10 million uplift to the UK Innovation and Science Seed Fund, plans to set up an Exascale supercomputer facility and a program to provide dedicated compute capacity for AI research, and £9 million in govt funding to support the establishment of a quantum computing research center by PsiQuantum.
