Abstract

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became enforceable in May 2018 and its impact is globally significant. Meanwhile, a growing number of organisations are increasingly adopting AI technologies. This paper explores the effects of the GDPR on UK companies adopting or using AI technologies. A survey of AI, Data Protection and technology experts is presented, the analysis of which provides some early insights into the praxis of GDPR and AI in operational contexts. Whilst a growing body of research focuses on AI ethics and the impact of algorithms, this project highlights other important concerns emerging from the introduction and use of AI technologies. The findings indicate that few organisations are fully compliant with the requirements of the GDPR, which is not unexpected given the novelty of the regulation and the complexity of the technology. Other elements which can impact compliance and innovation were less predictable. Therefore, we recommend adopting a holistic approach to the management of personal data and AI.
