The Mayor commissioned CognitionX to map Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation across London and identify the capital’s unique strengths as a global hub of AI. 

The research shows that London is the European capital of AI, and in sectors such as insurance and finance, is hot on the heels of the San Francisco Bay Area. London hosts over 750 AI suppliers, with new companies forming at a rapid rate, a strong and growing investor base, and a large demand from London’s financial, insurance and business communities.

The findings of this research will inform the actions the Mayor will take to support the future growth of AI across different industries to drive innovation, productivity and growth.
