DSIT expands with addition of data, digital, and AI specialists

The Department for Science, Innovation, and Technology (DSIT) is expanding to include experts in data, digital, and AI from the Government Digital Service (GDS), Central Digital and Data Office (CDDO), and Incubator for AI (i.AI). 

Led by Secretary of State Peter Kyle (pictured), this revamped department aims to unify efforts in the digital transformation of public services.

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.”
