In January 2021, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence (APPG AI), which aims to address the economic, social and ethical implications of developing and implementing artificial intelligence, held an evidence session on ‘Data Governance in the Post-Brexit Era: Is the National Data Strategy ambitious enough?’
In this session, experts were asked to consider whether the UK’s National Data Strategy (NDS), which outlines the UK government’s data strategy in several areas, is ambitious enough to meet the data challenges that new technologies and political changes to come. The session also considered the UK’s approach to data governance in the context of the European data strategy.
