Helping people be data aware

Today the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is launching the ‘Be Data Aware’ campaign to help people understand how organisations might be using their data to target them online, and how people can control who is targeting them.

Accuracy of AI system outputs and performance measures

One topic that doesn't get talked about enough is the ability to justify a decision made by AI.

But it is important that those organisations engaged in journalism know how to apply the requirements and exemptions in practice.
