ICO Blog: Explaining decisions made with AI guidance

Jul 30th '21

A blog by Abigail Hackston, Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Senior Policy Officer – Innovation looks back on the ICO’s work with organisations who use personal data and artificial intelligence (AI) to support, or to make decisions about individuals.


Reflecting on the first year of the ‘Explaining decisions made with AI’ guidance.


It is estimated that AI has the potential to help UK GDP grow by between 10 and 22 per cent by 2030. But with AI so often relying on people’s personal data to fuel innovation, those benefits are only possible where people trust their information will be used fairly.


To help organisations achieve this, the ICO worked with The Alan Turing Institute to produce ‘Explaining decisions made with AI’ guidance, published in May 2020. This aimed to “develop a framework for explaining processes, services and decisions delivered by AI, to improve transparency and accountability.”


The guidance was produced as a best practice document to help organisations of various sizes from different sectors.
