In parallel with the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has also unveiled a set of proposals to regulate the use of artificial intelligence. The report outlines the government's approach to regulating AI technology, with proposed new rules addressing future risks and opportunities so that businesses can be sure about how to develop and use AI systems while ensuring consumers are protected.
