New UK initiative to shape global standards for Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence 

The Alan Turing Institute, supported by the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), will pilot a new UK government initiative aiming to shape global technical standards for Artificial Intelligence and expand the country's contribution to the field. The hub is backed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Office for AI (OAI). The new AI Standard Hub will create practical tools for businesses, bring the UK's AI community together through a new online platform, and develop educational materials to help organisations contribute, develop and meet global standards. This will help put the UK at the forefront of this rapidly developing area. The Hub is part of the National AI Strategy and will aim to increase UK contribution to development of global AI technical standards.
