AI White Paper welcomed by Professional Body for IT
The Chartered Institute for IT, also known as BCS, supports the UK government's AI regulation proposals as they find that it strikes a balance between innovation and responsible principles. Here are some key points that make the proposal a good approach:
The proposals emphasize regulating the risk of AI use rather than the technology itself, which BCS believes is a better approach.
- The use of existing regulators from various sectors will ensure consistency throughout the regulatory landscape, according to BCS.
- The rules proposed by the UK government will be able to adapt quickly as technology continues to develop.
The UK government's White Paper on AI regulation outlines five principles that should guide AI use: safety, transparency, fairness, accountability, and contestability. Instead of creating a new regulator, the document advocates the use of existing regulators from various sectors. The proposal's focus on AI use rather than the technology itself aims to provide more flexibility than the EU's proposed regulations.
