House of Lords dinner introduces attendees to policy makers and their thoughts on developments in artificial intelligence and is an opportunity to network with fellow professionals
The House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence was formed to “to consider the economic, ethical and social implications of advances in artificial intelligence." and is chaired by Lord Clement-Jones.
The Committee's inquiry into artificial intelligence concluded that the UK is in a strong position to be among the world leaders in the development of artificial intelligence during the twenty first century. Britain contains leading AI companies, a dynamic academic research culture, a vigorous start-up ecosystem and a constellation of legal, ethical, financial and linguistic strengths located in close proximity to each other. Artificial intelligence, handled carefully, could be a great opportunity for the British economy. In addition, AI presents a significant opportunity to solve complex problems and potentially improve productivity, which the UK is right to embrace. Their recommendations are designed to support the Government and the UK in realising the potential of AI for our society and our economy, and to protect society from potential threats and risks. The Committee considered five key questions:
How does AI affect people in their everyday lives, and how is this likely to change?
What are the potential opportunities presented by artificial intelligence for the United Kingdom? How can these be realised?
What are the possible risks and implications of artificial intelligence? How can these be avoided?
How should the public be engaged with in a responsible manner about AI?
What are the ethical issues presented by the development and use of artificial intelligence?
