A pro-innovation approach to AI regulation
The consultation on this white paper and the associated AI regulation impact assessment closes on 21 June 2023. The links to the consultation surveys can be found here.
In the National AI Strategy, the government committed to developing a pro-innovation national position on governing and regulating AI, and we outlined our position in a policy paper in 2022. This white paper sets out the government’s proposals for implementing a proportionate, future-proof and pro-innovation framework for regulating AI.
The UK Science and Technology Framework sets out the government’s strategic vision to make the UK a science and technology superpower by 2030. It identifies AI as one of five critical technologies and notes that regulation plays an important role in creating an environment for AI to flourish.
Through this new approach to AI regulation, the government will help the UK harness the opportunities and benefits that AI technologies present. This will drive growth and prosperity by boosting innovation and investment, and building public trust in AI. It will strengthen the UK’s position as a global leader in AI, by ensuring the UK is the best place to develop and use AI technologies.
