Can new UK Hub shape global AI standards?


Hot on the heels of the UK's National AI Strategy - launched in September last year - comes the AI Standards Hub, a new government initiative, proposed in the Strategy, which aims to shape global standards for the technology. Britain's Alan Turing Institute, the London-based AI and data science organization founded in 2015, will lead the pilot, with support from the British Standards Institution (the BSI) and metrology institute the National Physical Laboratory. Three august and widely respected bodies, backed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the UK's Office for AI, which sits across DCMS and what is still called the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), even though the Prime Minister scrapped the Industrial Strategy last year - arguably the one bit of government that had been working. That aside, the move adds some much-needed substance to Whitehall claims of world leadership in AI and the UK being a "science and technology superpower". It does this by seeking to focus the debate on standards and regulation at global scale.
