DRCF to pilot new advisory service as part of Government’s plans for AI

The Government has today announced that, as part of its plans to design and deliver an AI regulatory framework, the DRCF will pilot a new multi-regulator service to help innovators develop their ideas with regulatory compliance in mind. Backed by substantial Government funding, the 'DRCF AI and Digital Hub' will help businesses navigate the process of making sure they are compliant with technology and AI regulations by providing tailored advice. The service will launch in the first half of 2024 for a 12-month pilot.

Kate Jones, DRCF CEO, said:

“The DRCF welcomes today’s announcement by Government. The DRCF AI and Digital Hub is an exciting new initiative which will help businesses get coordinated advice from regulators, enabling them to launch new products more quickly and efficiently. It is an excellent demonstration of the benefits of collaboration between regulators, which is what the DRCF was set up to achieve.”
