“The UK is a global leader in AI and I am pleased we are working with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and international partners to develop guidelines to ensure its safe and ethical deployment,” said Caroline Dinenage, Digital Minister of the United Kingdom.
This comment comes when the UK has released new guidelines to help governments accelerate the deployment of trusted AI solutions to help tackle some of the world’s biggest issues, although some public trust remains.
“The current pandemic has shown us more needs to be done to speed up the adoption of trusted AI around the world,” said Kay Firth-Butterfield, Head of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the World Economic Forum. “We moved from guidelines to practical tools, tested and iterated them – but this is still just a start. Now we will be working to scale them to countries around the world.”
For the past year, the WEF has worked alongside the UK’s Office for AI; companies such as Deloitte, Salesforce and Splunk; 15 other countries; and more than 150 members of government, academia, civil society, and the private sector. Read more here on AINews.
