AI Law Hub

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning is growing incredibly fast. The AI Index has tried to measure this growth, but it now operates in such a range of activities it is barely possible to get a static view. With each new use of AI the risk of it causing inequality, discrimination grows and breaching data protection rights. 

No one doubts that there should be responsibility under the rule of law for everything that a machine does. The fast developing question in the UK, Europe and the world generally is how to make this happen. We believe that business and individuals, governments, NGOs and lawyers, all need to understand this urgently. To find the right legal perspective right we have collated this hub of resources on equality, human rights, data protection and the developing global ethical standards.
