DSIT to be bolstered by data, digital and AI experts

The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) will expand in both scope and size bringing in experts in data, digital and AI. These will come from Government Digital Service (GDS), Central Digital and Data Office (CDDO) and Incubator for AI (i.AI).

The revamped department under Secretary of State Peter Kyle (pictured) aims to unite efforts in the digital transformation of public services under one department.

Kyle said: “DSIT is to become the centre for digital expertise and delivery in government, improving how the government and public services interact with citizens.

"We will act as a leader and partner across government, with industry and the research communities, to boost Britain’s economic performance and power up our public services to improve the lives and life chances of people through the application of science and technology.”
