UK Governments Releases AI Rulebook

Subscribe to our newsletter

The UK government has released an AI rulebook with a view to protecting data and promoting responsible use of the technology. Proposals in the rulebook look to future regulation of AI and take a less centralised approach than the EU. AI is defined as ‘machines which learn from data how to perform tasks normally performed by humans. For example, AI helps identify patterns in financial transactions that could indicate fraud.’

The proposals are part of the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill that has been introduced to Parliament. Instead of giving responsibility for AI governance to a central regulatory body – as the EU is doing through its AI Act – the proposals allow different  regulators to take an approach suited to their industry, the aim being to create proportionate and adaptable regulation that allows AI to be rapidly adopted to boost productivity and growth.

Whatever the application, however, regulators must make sure developers and users follow six core principles: ensure AI is used safely; ensure AI is technically secure and functions as designed; make sure AI is appropriately transparent and explainable; consider fairness; identify a legal person to be responsible for AI; and clarify routes to redress or contestability.
