Abstract

Here, we provide a response to the UK Government's March 2023 white paper "A pro-innovation approach to AI regulation". We challenge the white paper's claims that it puts forward a balanced, pragmatic, proportionate, contextualised, and agile model that leverages the capabilities and skills of existing regulators to foster AI innovation. We also challenge the claims that the model is underpinned by a set of principles providing a clear, unified, and flexible framework that improves upon the current ‘complex patchwork of legal requirements’.

Keywords: artificial intelligence, regulation, innovation, principles, guidance, public sector, regulatory capture, regulatory tilt, innovation first, pro-innovation

JEL Classification: K20, L50, O38
