‘Pro-innovation approach to AI Regulation’
BCS was quoted in the launch of the Government’s AI regulation White Paper. It aims to guide the use of artificial intelligence in the UK by striking a balance between regulation and innovation.
Helping AI grow up without pressing pause
As AI’s development continues to gather pace and prominence, BCS believes that pausing its development isn’t the most practical way to ensure that the technology serves society well. There are other ways in which AI’s inherent risks can be managed.
