UK: ICO launches consultation on draft guidance on AI auditing framework

The Information Commissioner's Office ('ICO') launched, on 19 February 2020, a consultation ('the Consultation') on its draft guidance ('the Draft Guidance') on the artificial intelligence ('AI') auditing framework for organisations. In particular, the Draft Guidance contains advice on how to understand data protection law in relation to AI and recommendations for organisational and technical measures to mitigate the risks AI poses to individuals. In addition, the Draft Guidance provides a methodology to audit AI applications and ensure they process personal data fairly.

Lastly, the ICO outlined that feedback to the Draft Guidance can be submitted here by 1 April 2020.
