Wednesday 12 October saw the launch of the UK AI Standards Hub. The aim of the Hub is to help stakeholders across industry, government and regulators, civil society, and academia understand, use, and develop standards. The initiative is led by the Alan Turing Institute in partnership with the British Standards Institution (BSI), the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Office for AI.
As well as the website, which hosts the Standards Database, policy and research databases, training materials and forums, the Hub initiative will also focus on live events, research and international engagement.
More specifically, the Hub’s activities will fall into these four categories:
The official launch event, which took place in person and online, included presentations and interactive discussions with government representatives, the Hub’s partner organisations, and key stakeholders. The recording of this session will be available soon, and at that point we will add the link to this article.
If you are interested in getting involved, you can create a user account to follow standards, participate in discussions, and connect with other community members here.
