Responsible AI research: challenges and opportunities

Exploring the foundational premises for delivering ‘world-leading data protection standards’ that benefit people and achieve societal goals

Uses of data: research, justice and medical research
Date and time
2:00pm – 3:00pm, 3 November 2021 (GMT)

On 10 September, the UK Government published its proposal for amending the current data protection regime (the UK GDPR). The aim is to create ‘a pro-growth and pro-innovation data regime whilst maintaining the UK’s world-leading data protection standards’.

At the Ada Lovelace Institute, our mission is to ensure that data and AI work for people and society. In order to explore whether the Government’s plans will enable these aims, we are organising a series of five events, each looking at different sections, questions, statements and framing in the Government’s consultation and asking what benefits and challenges are brought by the proposals.

Session 5: Responsible AI research: challenges and opportunities

Wednesday 3 November, 14:00-15:00 GMT

The fifth event in our series focuses on responsible AI research. This is a particular focus of chapter 1 of the consultation, where the Government proposes to consolidate and change existing rules around the use of personal data for research purposes.

This event interrogates the idea that more data necessarily leads to better research, and explore questions including:

  • What does responsible AI research look like, and what role does data protection play in conducting responsible AI research?
  • What have the impacts of data protection regulations been on research culture, data sharing and access to data?
  • What have the impacts of data protection regulations been on the ability of researchers to create beneficial research?
