The Future of compute review - call for evidence is now open until 5 August 2022.

In the past decade, compute has grown by orders of magnitude as a critical general purpose technology for productivity, prosperity, and innovation. With 90% of UK businesses using the cloud, and the cloud market doubling every 3-4 years, nearly every business now has the potential for immediate access to supercomputer-scale compute.

The Future of compute review will produce recommendations to support the government’s integrated review ambition for the UK to be a science and technology superpower. The goals of the review are to:

  • Understand the UK’s compute needs over the next decade
  • Identify cost-effective, future-facing interventions that may be required to ensure research and industry have internationally competitive access to compute
  • Establish a view of the role of compute in delivering the Integrated Review and Science Superpower this decade
