AI for Turing Innovation Catalyst

Navigating AI Regulations with AI Tech UK and Turing Innovation Catalyst Manchester

Topic: Ethics-360º - Applying AI Governance Practically

As we navigate the fast-evolving realm of AI, the question of ethics is slowly taking center stage. Forbes Advisor research found that 59% of UK residents have concerns about the use of artificial intelligence*. As the novelty of technological wonderment wears off, critical questions about how we live and work with AI are coming to the fore. Building ethical AI approaches is essential for a fair and just society.  AI Tech UK, in collaboration with Turing Innovation Catalyst (TiC) Manchester, has been at the forefront of this mission.

To address the complexities of AI regulations, AI Tech UK along with TiC Manchester hosted a comprehensive series of 2 webinars and a workshop wherein the users got to beta test our Ethics and governance tool.

This initiative aimed to equip participants with the knowledge and tools to navigate the regulatory landscape confidently.

The program featured an in-depth exploration of the ISO 42001 framework which is crucial for understanding international standards in AI development. Additionally, we demystified the EU AI Act, highlighting its implications for compliance and implementation. The program also included engaging discussions with individuals from both AI and non-AI backgrounds, focusing on the ethical implications of AI in business.
