Eerke Boiten, De Montfort University
In the area of digital technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), the UK budget can be a barometer of technological development and hype.

AI could make more work for us, instead of simplifying our lives
Barbara Ribeiro, University of Manchester
There’s a common perception that artificial intelligence (AI) will help streamline our work. There are even fears that it could wipe out the need for some jobs altogether.
But in a study of science laboratories I carried out with three colleagues at the University of Manchester, the introduction of automated processes that aim to simplify work — and free people’s time — can also make that work more complex, generating new tasks that many workers might perceive as mundane.
The EU’s AI Act – Innovations Vs Human Rights
Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is everywhere. Thanks to a lack of red tape, it’s transforming our homes, economies and cultures – from ChatGPT and virtual DJs, to facial recognition and predictive policing tools.

Deepfakes: faces created by AI now look more real than genuine photos
Manos Tsakiris, Royal Holloway University of London
Even if you think you are good at analysing faces, research shows many people cannot reliably distinguish between photos of real faces and images that have been computer-generated. This is particularly problematic now that computer systems can create realistic-looking photos of people who don’t exist.
