Governance of artificial intelligence (AI)

Inquiry

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) has increased significantly in recent years. It offers a range of potential benefits such as quicker analysis of large datasets allowing more accurate information, forecasts and predictions, and more personalised public services. However, there are a number of concerns, such as the possibility of biased algorithms, a lack of transparency and unexplained decision-making. The Government is expected to publish a white paper on AI governance later this year to address these issues.

The Committee will examine the effectiveness of AI governance and the Government’s proposals.
