SGAI, the British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence, was founded in June 1980. The Group's mission is: "To foster achievement, capability and awareness in both business and research in Artificial Intelligence, and to promote the interests of the related community". It is one of Europe's longest established groups working to support the community of artificial intelligence developers and users.

SGAI has organised an annual international conference since 1981, as well as colloquia, evening lectures and other events of many kinds.

SGAI is a Specialist Group of The British Computer Society and has been a member of EurAi, The European Association for Artificial Intelligence (formerly known as ECCAI), since 1992.
