In March 2023, the UK government released a whitepaper which lays out a blueprint for regulating Artificial Intelligence (AI). The whitepaper is called “a pro-innovation approach to AI regulation.” If the UK government proceeds to implement the whitepaper, then there is a real risk that the adopted framework could undermine existing legal protections. This issue has not received full attention yet. Michael Birtwistle, who is affiliated with the Ada Lovelace Institute, noted that the proposed approach to regulation leaves “significant gaps” given the scale and urgency of the risks. In this post I will argue that more attention needs to be paid to how the proposed framework can undermine existing legal protections.
