UK Parliament launches inquiry into AI implications

The Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence – created by the UK Parliament’s House of Lords in June 2017 to explore the economic, ethical, and social implications of artificial intelligence (AI) – has launched a public call for evidence on the implications of AI. The Committee intends to use the submissions to prepare the report it has to delivered by 31 March 2018. Some of the aspects that the inquiry is focused on include the current state of AI and the pace of development, the impact of AI on society, ethical implications, the role of government, and the work of other countries and international organisations.
