We are committed to harnessing the huge potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve people’s lives. That’s why we’re making sure British values, rules and know-how are at the heart of safe AI that will benefit us all.

Our AI White Paper set out that:

  • all uses of AI in the UK must comply with the Equality Act;
  • regulators should look to key principles such as fairness, accountability, contestability and redress when making sure that the use of AI is safe.

I am also continuing to drive implementation of the Inclusive Britain Action Plan’s commitments to guard against bias in AI.
