A Royal Society spokesperson said, “It is essential to get the best possible environment for the safe and rapid use of data in order to enhance the UK’s wellbeing, security and economic growth.

“The British Academy and the Royal Society are conducting a rapid review of data science, and data-driven technologies such as machine learning, and a holistic consideration of the governance landscape, in order to make recommendations for governance arrangements that can ensure the UK remains a world leader in this area.

“We hope that the outcomes of this work will be of value to Government in forming arrangements for governance of technologies such as AI and of data use more generally.”
