The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence (APPG AI) was set up in January 2017, with the stated purpose:
To explore the impact and implications of Artificial Intelligence.
The APPG AI will address the economic, social, and ethical implications of developing and implementing Artificial Intelligence (including machine learning, natural language understanding, automated reasoning, autonomous systems, etc). We aim: to unpack the term, to gather evidence to better understand it, to assess its impact, and, ultimately, to empower decision-makers to make policies in the sphere. Without being too technical, we will try to understand how AI will impact the lives of UK citizens and organisations, and subsequently, whether and how it should be regulated. Bringing together government, business, and academia we will share evidence and assist in setting an agenda for how the UK should address AI moving forward. There is a lot to explore and evidence is key shaping the future. The APPG AI is co-chaired by Stephen Metcalfe MP (Conservative) and Lord Clement-Jones CBE (Liberal Democrat). The Group Officers are Chris Green MP, The Right Reverend Doctor Steven Croft, Baroness Kramer, Lord Janvrin, Lord Broers, Lord Holmes of Richmond, Lord Willetts, Baroness McGregor-Smith, Mark Hendrick MP and Carol Monaghan MP. The Group supporters – Barclays, BP, Deloitte, EDF Energy, KPMG, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP, Oxford University Computer Science, PwC, Microsoft – enable us to raise the ambition of what we can achieve.
