UK: Law Society recommendations about AI regulation

Technology, Transparency,

The Law Society in the UK has issued recommendations for the government to consider in the regulation of artificial intelligence:

  • "the expertise of the legal profession should be recognised and harnessed in the AI regulatory approach
    legal professional privilege must be protected in the future regulation of AI
  • the UK Government should take a balanced approach to regulation to safeguard social interests while not impeding technological progression
  • legislation should establish parameters where the use of AI is unacceptable or where it is inappropriate for AI to make zero-sum decisions
  • the UK Government should set out a definition for ‘meaningful human intervention’ in AI
    organisations should appoint an AI officer when needed
  • mandatory transparency is needed for the use of AI in government or public services and establishing a due diligence system to boost public trust."
