UK thinking on AI regulation evolving as concerns over risks grow

15/04/2024 | Financial Times

The UK government is reportedly planning to introduce new legislation to regulate the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The legislation would likely include limits on the creation of large language models, according to the Financial Times (£). It is expected to require companies developing sophisticated models to share their algorithms with the government and provide evidence of safety testing. 

The news comes after Sarah Cardell, the chief executive of the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), expressed concerns about potential harms associated with AI, including the possibility of biased algorithms and the creation of harmful materials. 

The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) is said to be "developing its thinking" on what the legislation would cover, although it is unclear when it will be introduced.
