Governing AI effectively: what does it take?

27th Sep 2021 11:00am - 12:00pm Hosted by Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation

The National AI Strategy wants the UK to lead the way in the development and use of trustworthy AI, protecting the public and the consumer while increasing confidence and investment in AI technologies. But what does an effective, pro-innovation governance of AI mean in practice?


As the AI sector matures there has been increasing discussion on how standards and ‘assurance’ tools such as audits, certification, and impact assessments, might help to ensure AI deployment is both trusted and trustworthy.

The panel will be chaired by Dame Wendy Hall, member of the AI Council, and will feature senior speakers and panellists Dr Mark Durkee (Team Lead at the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation), Dr David Leslie (Ethics Theme Lead at the Alan Turing Institute), Tim McGarr (Sector Lead for Digital at the BSI), Dr Marion Oswald (Vice Chancellor’s Senior Fellow in Law at Northumbria University, and Chair of the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and West Midlands Police Data Ethics Committee), and Sarah-Jane Green (Head of AI Regulation & Policy, NHSX and Head of Parliamentary Business).

Join the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation and the Office for AI in a discussion on the National AI Strategy, as we look at the role of standards and certification, the wider regulation landscape, as well as some of the keyways that an ‘AI Assurance Ecosystem’ can help support responsible AI, and what it would take to make this happen.
