The Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CDEI) has published the second iteration of the AI Barometer – an analysis of the most pressing opportunities, risks and governance challenges presented by AI and data use in sectors heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic: recruitment and the workplace, transport and logistics, and education. Large-scale technological change is occurring at an unprecedented pace, which the global response to COVID-19 has only accelerated, with far-reaching implications across all aspects of our lives. It comes accompanied by an overwhelming volume of commentary and claims, for which the evidence – and extent of sensationalism – can often be unclear. In the face of all this, it can be difficult to discern which issues most require our attention. The ambition of the AI Barometer is to provide a much needed system-wide view of how AI and data is being used across the UK.
Join the CDEI as we look at the governance challenges facing different organisations across the three sectors, from regulators to businesses, as try to navigate this landscape, find proportionate governance solutions, and maximise the benefits that better data use promises.
