The Future of AI in Government

Lord Clement-Jones, consultant of global law firm DLA Piper, former chair of the UK House of Lords Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, we talk about emerging regulations for substituting AI for human labor and routine work, regulating big tech, AI for grand societal challenges, data trusts, and UK strengths in AI.

My takeaway is that there are crucial risks and opportunities involved with AI that do need to be resolved this decade, by governments, even though the pace of adoption might not be as steep as some industry visionaries predict. The existing governance frameworks around the world are not enough. He government simply needs a new approach to algorithmic decision making. Data trusts is one piece of the puzzle, not the only approach, but perhaps an important one.
