Julie Barnes and Anne Radford
are currently excited by ideas of boldness. We know that stories of
others’ boldness inspire us to be bold ourselves. This issue of AI
Practitioner is about boldness in the UK AI network', say Julie Barnes

There are six articles, in Part 1,
about new models, ways and places where people have been bold in their
use of AI with stories from two business leaders, board members
safeguarding children and staff transforming social care for adults
Part 2 includes stories about evaluating
leadership programmes, debriefing regeneration projects and building
co-operative learning out-of-doors for children.
