The United Kingdom Seeks a Different Kind of AI Leadership

Another country has announced its ambitions for AI leadership: The United Kingdom. Earlier this week, the House of Lords are calling for British leadership in the ethics of artificial intelligence.

Their report, titled AI in the UK: Ready, willing, and able?, states that the UK is in a “strong position” to take global leadership on AI:

“By establishing these principles, the UK can lead by example in the international community. We recommend that the Government convene a global summit of governments, academia and industry to establish international norms for the design, development, regulation and deployment of artificial intelligence.”

AIWS is also working to develop standards and ethics for artificial intelligence, which are one layer of our AIWS 7-Layer Model to Build Next Generation Democracy.
