Government’s AI office to increase data access and trust

The Government’s Office for Artificial Intelligence is to work with the Open Data Institute to develop so-called ‘data trusts’, to enable people to safely access and share data, digital secretary Jeremy Wright has announced.

According to the ODI, data trusts are intended to “give people and organisations confidence when enabling access to data in ways that provide them with some value in return”. This could include setting up a data trust as a legal structure that provides independent third-party stewardship of data.

“Data trusts are a potential new way to help realise the benefits of data while preventing any harmful impacts,” ODI chief executive Jeni Tennison said in a statement on 20 November.
