Launch event: AI and Data Protection Risk Toolkit, 3 May, 14.00-15.30
The ICO is launching a new version of its AI and Data Protection Risk Toolkit, intended to be used by organisations to assess the risks to individual rights and freedoms associated with their use of AI.
To celebrate the launch of the toolkit, the ICO and techUK are co-hosting a hybrid event. Here, a demonstration of the toolkit will be provided, and ICO's Executive Director of Regulatory Futures, Stephen Bonner, will share his perspective on the challenges to data protection that are caused or exacerbated by AI.
This is a hybrid event with limited in-person tickets. For those attending in person, it will be followed by an opportunity to network at the techUK offices.
Digital Ethics Working Group - with Jess Morley presenting on Ethics as a service', 5 May, 14.30-15.45
In this quarterly meeting of the Digital Ethics Working Group we are joined by Jess Morley, Policy Lead at Oxford DataLab, who will present on her paper Ethics as a service: a pragmatic operationalisation of AI Ethics. The research explores whether the gap between the theory of AI ethics principles and the practical design of AI systems can be closed, and how AI ethics can become most useful to practitioners. Following her presentation there will be a Q&A and discussion.
Before Jess joins the meeting, we will be going over upcoming techUK plans and take comments and ideas from working group members. If you would like to join for Jess' presentation only, we suggest you dial in at 14.55. If you are not currently a member of the DEWG but would like to join for this event, please get in touch with Zoe.
