UK jurisdiction chapter contribution to ‘AI Regulation Guide’

A team at Harbottle & Lewis led by partners Sacha Wilson and Emma Wright has contributed the UK chapter for an AI regulation guide, published by World IT Lawyers (WITL). The new guide summarises the current national AI regulations across different European jurisdictions.

While there is currently no specific legislation governing AI in the UK, the chapter discusses the overall approach as well as general OECD principles around safety, fairness, security and accountability. Further, a number of industry specific bills, which were going through this year, have been dropped or paused due to the General Election last week.

The guide states that the law relating to IP and AI-generated works is still developing and existing frameworks are being tested. In terms of international agreements and conventions, the UK has set up bodies to ensure alignment and collaboration with international rules on AI.
