back to article UK aims for 'openness and fairness' in its AI Strategy – unless we're talking about favoured contractors

It has been more than a month since the launch of the UK government's AI Strategy which, the authors said, "represents the start of a step-change for AI in the UK," and The Register, for one, has not forgotten.

    "Faculty is a highly experienced AI specialist ... "

    WTF???? ..... a highly experienced AI specialist in a field of specialist endeavour still virtually in the womb?

    Surely "openness and fairness" means that any company or individual will be able to offer inducements to those officials making commercial decisions. Not just, as at present, those entities that are friends of government ministers?

      no, no... 'friends of government ministers' are trusted because they know them personally from regular meetings at Ascot, Wimbledon, the FA Cup final and holiday villas in the Med... after all, they have the minister's private mobile number and personal Gmail account, so what more proof do you need than that

    Hypocrisy rules ok, uk

    particularly 'ironic', when the PM publicly dodges press questions in Glasgow, and finally comes up with a hilarious statement that no, UK is not a corrupt country, nosir, any further questions? This, having tried, with his pals, in broad daylight, to change the rules that punished the corrupted, and, after several clear cases of his own political corruption, and his closest gov pals. Gaspadin Putin 'likes' PM's statement to the press!

      Also ironic that he 'missed' the 'corruption' debate because it started at 4pm and he was on a train from Glasgow at the time

      The train arrived at King's Cross at 5pm!

        well, the Prime Minister is very, VERY sorry about this unfortunate coincidence!

        But hey, it's not the first time he runs away from uncomfortable and 'awkward' situations, eh. Not the second time either. Or the third. Or...

        So VOTE FOR BORIS folks! Best bet to make Great Britain even 'Grater'. YEARS of proven track record, etc.

    "extensive guidance on how firms can use the technology ethically and transparently"

    Yes, we got it : private industry, not government.

    The government governs, dammit, transparency is for the underlings.
