The launch of 'An Ethical AI Future'
On Monday 19th June, Policy Connect and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data Analytics launched their third report in the data ethics series titled ‘An Ethical AI Future: Guardrails & Catalysts to make Artificial Intelligence a Force for Good’.
Attendees were welcomed to Parliament for the launch to set out the recommendations from the report. We heard from report author Oona Muirhead, alongside former chair of CDEI, Roger Taylor. The panel also included inquiry sponsors, Noa Gal from Bright Data, Ansgar Koene from EY, and Penny Jones from Zurich Insurance. Policy Connect's Chief Executive Claudia Jaksch closed the session by speaking on the next steps for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data Analytics and invited attendees to keep in touch as we look to continue follow-on work on this important topic.
An Ethical AI Future calls for:
- The Government to work with partners in Europe, the US and elsewhere towards a global AI Convention and Watchdog.
- The creation of a National AI Centre to convene existing regulators, ensure agile regulation of AI, and fill any regulatory gaps.
- The Government to introduce statutory duties worded such as to require organisations to achieve the objective of ‘doing no harm’ through ‘cultural embedding’ governance and leadership.
