Keeping it ethical

Ethical AI and compliance with the draft EU AI Regulation in an EdTech context

AI companies need to engage with the ethical implications of their systems. That involves planning ahead: in this episode, we therefore look at the European Union’s proposed AI regulation, and – with the help of our guest, Patricia Shaw – discuss its application in an EdTech context. The proposed regulation is available here.

Patricia Shaw is CEO of Beyond Reach Consulting Ltd, providing AI/data ethics strategy, public policy engagement, bespoke AI/data ethics risk and governance advice, and advisory board services, across financial services, public sector (Health- and EdTech), and smart cities.
