GCHQ sets out rules of the road for AI in cyber

by Jeremy

Used responsibly, artificial intelligence (AI) technology will in the future help cyber analysts fact check and detect deepfake media to tackle disinformation, map international networks enabling human, drugs, and weapons trafficking, and the crackdown on child sexual abuse, according to a paper produced by GCHQ, the UK’s national signals intelligence and information assurance agency. In Ethics of AI: Pioneering new national security, GCHQ sets out why AI technology will inevitably find itself at the heart of its core mission to protect the UK’s national security and how it can be used appropriately. It has been released ahead of an upcoming government review of security, defense, development, and foreign policy.

GHCQ said that AI would be a critical issue for the UK’s security in the 21st century and that while many are excited by the opportunities it presents, left unchecked, it too readily reflects the inherent beliefs and assumptions – whether good, bad or neutral – of those who design it. It said the UK needs increased dialogue and debate around the use and protection of AI to be used to maximize the positives while minimizing the risk to individual privacy.

The paper outlines how GCHQ will ensure it uses AI fairly and transparently, applying existing tests of necessity and proportionality – including establishing an AI ethical code of practice, ensuring diversity of thought and experience in its development and governance, and protecting the privacy and ensuring systematic fairness. Like so many technologies, AI offers great promise for society, prosperity, and securityIts’ impact on GCHQ is equally profound. AI is already invaluable in many of our missions as we protect the country, its people, le and way of life,” said GCHQ director Jeremy Fleming. It allows our

While this unprecedented technological evolution comes with great opportunity, it also poses significant ethical challenges for society, including GCHQ. “Today, we are setting out our plan and commitment to the ethical use of AI in our mission. I hope it will inspire further thinking at home and abroad about how we can ensure fairness, transparency,cy, and accountability to underpin the use of AI.”
