More regulation on AI development
UK seeks more regulation
On Wednesday, the UK government published a series of recommendations for the AI industry, highlighting that the technology is currently in a period of frenetic development and therefore it is necessary for them to follow certain rules in some specific areas.
According to the document presented to the Department of Science, Innovation and Technology, the principles that must be taken into account are security and solidity; transparency and explainability; equity; accountability and governance; and challenge and reparation.
This is a first step towards regulating AI as experts are concerned about its potential to generate misinformation or be impacted by bias during its programming.
