On July 25, 2019, the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) published a blog on the trade-offs between different data protection principles when using Artificial Intelligence (“AI”). The ICO recognizes that AI systems must comply with several data protection principles and requirements, which at times may pull organizations in different directions. The blog identifies notable trade-offs that may arise, provides some practical tips for resolving these trade-offs, and offers worked examples on visualizing and mathematically minimizing trade-offs.
The ICO invites organizations with experience of considering these complex issues to provide their views. This recent blog post on trade-offs is part of its on-going Call for Input on developing a new framework for auditing AI.
