On 30 July the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) released its Guidance of Artificial Intelligence and Data Protection. Simon McDougall, the ICO’s Deputy Commissioner, says that the guidance, the culmination of two years’ work, “contains recommendations on best practice and technical measures that organisations can use to mitigate those risks caused or exacerbated by the use of this technology. It is reflective of current AI practices and is practically applicable”. The ICO says the guidance is aimed at “those with a compliance focus, such as data protection officers (DPOs), general counsel, risk managers, senior management, and the ICO’s own auditors; and technology specialists, including machine learning experts, data scientists, software developers and engineers, and cybersecurity and IT risk managers.”
