It will be co-chaired by James Timpson (CEO, Timpson), Brent Hoberman (chairman, Founders Forum) and Emma Jones (founder, Enterprise Nation).

Turing complete
The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence, is exploring how it will work with small companies as a part of their mandate to achieve impact through data science and AI research. They are seeking to understand how UK SMEs could benefit from the Institute’s assets and activities and they are inviting your input via a public consultation. Tell Turing what SMEs need to succeed. The consultation closes on 26th November.
