Artificial Intelligence

The United Kingdom has issued an ambitious report on its 10 year plan to become an AI super power.

The document lays out a detailed business plan with 3 month, 6 month and longer objectives.

Notably:

  • The document states that the government is also exploring how privacy enhancing technologies (PET) can remove barriers to data

The Federal Trade Commission has issued guidance on using artificial intelligence (AI) in algorithms.

Key Takeaways

The use of AI tools should be transparent, explainable, fair and empirically sound, while fostering accountability.

  • Don’t deceive consumers about how you use automated tools.
  • Be transparent when collecting sensitive data.
  • Be careful about how you get that data

“The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), while establishing a needed EU-wide privacy framework, will unfortunately inhibit the development and use of AI in Europe, putting firms in the EU at a competitive disadvantage to their North American and Asian competitors,” say the authors of a new report by the Center for Data Innovation in Washington.
