UK Prime Minister calls for ethical rules for AI

25 Jan 2018

Addressing the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, UK Prime Minister Theresa May spoke about UK's plans to become a world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and 'the place [for companies] to come and set up to seize the opportunities of AI for the future'. She also made a call for the international community 'to shape this [technological] change to ensure it works for everyone – be that in people's jobs or their daily lives'. Speaking about the need for rules and standards 'that can make most of AI in a responsible way', May called for international cooperation in building 'a common understanding of how to ensure the safe, ethical and innovative deployment of AI'. Such cooperation could happen in the framework of UK's Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (currently under creation) or WEF’s Council on the Future of AI and Robotics.
