BritGPT could be a response to American tech companies, the Labour Party leader Keir Starmer said.

As the UK market is getting more and more overflowed with American tech brands, a national artificial intelligence (AI) could prevent foreign dominance.


The creation of BritGPT is one of the Long Term projects suggested by the party in 2023. The policies aim at mitigating dangers like pandemics, climate breakdown, and AI extinction. In their recent report, Labour stated that the £1bn pledged by the government in the 2023 budget is not enough to protect Britain’s future independence. The document calls for the creation of BritGPT, described by The Guardian as “a homemade system with a remit to focus on market failures rather than simply trying to compete with Silicon Valley to build the biggest models”.

“Private profit-seeking companies aren’t going to invest enough in ‘AI for good’ or AI safety, so the UK government should step in to correct this market failure and provide more public goods – such as medical research, clean energy research, and AI safety research,” the report states. The Labour party proposed that some of the money could even come out of their £28bn annual “climate investment pledge” as a result.
