Better Innovation

Nov 14, 2019

Emerging technologies like AI and blockchain have the potential to transform industries and entire economies — so where do governments come in? Jeff breaks it all down with Minister Ivan McKee, the Minister for Trade, Investment, and Innovation in Scotland.


Minister McKee plays a critical role in building an inclusive tech ecosystem for the public and private sectors. He and his colleagues have promoted training opportunities, integrated AI into the country’s healthcare and tax systems, and developed a regulatory framework for data privacy.


While many see emerging tech as a threat, Minister McKee views it an evolution of Scotland’s rich industrial heritage — and as a powerful tool that enables Scotland to compete on a global scale.
