Review to probe use of AI in the public sector

The Committee on Standards in Public Life has announced a review of artificial intelligence in the public sector.

In a letter addressed to prime minister Theresa May dated 21 March and published on 30 April, the committee’s chair Jonathan Evans said the review would seek to establish whether existing frameworks and regulations are sufficient.

“The committee will examine the extent to which artificial intelligence is already being used in the public sector, looking at how standards may be affected by the widespread introduction of this technology, and explore what safeguards and considerations of standards are currently in place in the procurement and deployment of AI across the public sector,” Evans wrote in the letter.
