18 June 2020 – CDEI AI Barometer virtual launch event

Past Event

18th June, 11am.

Join us for the launch of the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation’s first AI Barometer – an analysis of the most pressing opportunities, risks, and governance challenges associated with AI and data use across five key UK sectors.

The current age of data-driven technology is unlike anything we have seen before. Large-scale technological change is occurring at an unprecedented pace, which the global response to COVID-19 has only accelerated, with far-reaching implications across all aspects of our lives. It comes accompanied by an overwhelming volume of commentary and claims, for which the evidence – and extent of sensationalism – can often be unclear. In the face of all this, it can be difficult to discern which issues most require our attention. The ambition of the AI Barometer is to provide a much needed system-wide view of how AI and data is being used across the UK, and with the launch of this first report, we begin to build that picture.

Speaker list:

  • CDEI Chair Roger Taylor
  • AI Barometer Lead, Michael Birtwistle
  • Regulatory Horizons Council Chair, Cathryn Ross
  • Director of WebRoots Democracy, Areeq Chowdhury
  • Director of Policy and Strategy at Future Care Capital, Annemarie Naylor.
