Good Web Network: How should we regulate AI?

18 Jul 2023 - 18 Jul 2023

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm GMT


A few months ago, policy makers had only a vague idea of the importance of AI. Now, Presidents and Prime Ministers across the world are scrambling to convene experts, host Summits and consider how we can make generative AI work for the good of society.

This event will seek to answer the question on the minds of every government: How do we regulate the next generation of AI?


  • Jeremy Wright MP, former Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
  • Dorothy Chou, Head of Public Affairs, DeepMind
  • Resham Kotecha, Head of Policy, The Open Data Institute

This event will consider:

  • What’s the best approach to regulating AI? Should we use AI in high risk applications, such as autonomous weapons? How do we balance power between humans and computers? Do we need an international treaty?
  • What are the lessons that we can learn from recent attempts to regulate digital technology, such data protection laws and the Online Safety Bill?
  • Can the UK be the centre for global regulation on AI? Is international regulation of AI even possible?
  • Is the focus on AI taking our eye off the ball on other emergent technologies?

Bringing together policy makers, experts and civil society, the Good Web Network will discuss this pressing issue.
