FHI Researcher Owen Cotton-Barratt recently gave evidence to the UK Parliament’s Science and Technology Commons Select Committee

The Science and Technology Committee took evidence from experts on the current and future developments in robotics and artificial intelligence, specifically focusing on the research and funding landscape, responsible innovation and the social, legal and ethical issues raised by developments in the field.

Dr Owen Cotton-Barratt provided oral and written evidence, focusing upon the need for Governments to keep a broadly global view in its approach on AI and not take actions which are based on an implicit premise about AI having a clear upper limit in future capability. He additionally raised that groups investigating these issues may benefit from focusing on broad principles not narrow recommendations, prioritizing flexible application to new developments and increased capacity.
