Digital secretary Matt Hancock will visit Paris today to announce a package of measures to strengthen ties between the UK and France’s tech industries.

Hancock will speak at a bilateral conference on data and the digital economy alongside Mounir Mahjoubi, his French counterpart.

During his speech, Hancock is expected to comment on the UK’s ‘world-leading’ capabilities for AI and data.

The partnership between both nations will see The Alan Turing Institute sign an agreement with French Institute DATAIA to pursue collaborative research in areas of mutual interesting, including transparency, fairness and the design and implementation of algorithms.

"The UK is a digital dynamo, increasingly recognised across the world as a place where ingenuity and innovation can flourish. We are home to four in ten of Europe’s tech businesses worth more than $1 billion and London is the AI capital of Europe."
