On 20 September, the UK Government published its proposal for amending the current data protection regime (the UK GDPR). The aim is to create ‘a pro-growth and pro-innovation data regime whilst maintaining the UK’s world-leading data protection standards’.
At the Ada Lovelace Institute, our mission is to ensure that data and AI work for people and society. In order to explore whether the Government’s plans will enable these aims, we are organising a series of five events, each looking at different sections, questions, statements and framing in the Government’s consultation and asking what benefits and challenges are brought by the proposals.
The third event in our series focuses on accountable AI. This theme is prevalent through chapters 1 and 2 of the consultation, particularly the sections on automated decision-making and accountability frameworks, where the Government suggests accountability mechanisms present barriers to innovation.
This event will interrogate the assumption that accountability measures are barriers and whether they can also deliver benefits to society.
