Share article

In collaboration with the Better Regulation Executive and funded by the GovTech Catalyst, AI specialist Waymark Tech is developing a new solution to promote understanding of existing regulation and to provide analysis that informs and improves the way in which new regulations are introduced in the future. Founded in 2016, Waymark Tech offers AI-as-a-Service to reveal hidden patterns and connections within vast, dynamic and unstructured text datasets. The new project will develop state of the art natural language processing (NLP) technology that will systematically extract information from thousands of pages of UK legislation and then model the burden it applies on businesses, as well as tagging the content for ease of access.
