Silicon Valley’s tech giants are reportedly taking their talent hunt to Cambridge, England where they are snapping up engineers and researchers, particularly those working in the fields of artificial intelligence.

It is said that the arrival of firms such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Apple will provide a much needed boost to the British economy which had been hurt by its departure from the European Union.

British secretary of state Matthew Hancock, who also oversees digital policy, says that while they welcome the tech giants, they are working to ensure that the next generation of companies are built in Cambridge. The city is currently home to around 4,500 high-tech firms employing a total of 75,000 people.
