The APPG AI will address the economic, social, and ethical implications of developing and implementing Artificial Intelligence (including machine learning, natural language understanding, automated reasoning, autonomous systems, etc). We aim: to unpack the term, to gather evidence to better understand it, to assess its impact, and, ultimately, to empower decision-makers to make policies in the sphere. Without being too technical, we will try to understand how AI will impact the lives of UK citizens and organisations, and subsequently, whether and how it should be regulated. Bringing together government, business, and academia we will share evidence and assist in setting an agenda for how the UK should address AI moving forward. There is a lot to explore and evidence is key shaping the future.
