The UK-based Alan Turing Institute is launching a new research program in data science and artificial intelligence (AI) for public policy. The programme aims to foster government innovation and develop the ethical foundations for the use of data in policy-making. Researchers will work with policy-makers to explore how data-driven public service provision and policy innovation might solve long running “wicked” policy problems to develop the ethical foundations for the use of data in policy-making and to restore government’s role as a leader in tech innovation.

Policy-makers have a huge opportunity to use these technologies to improve the provision of public services, to design more effective policies, and to measure policy outcomes more accurately. The new programme builds on the Turing’s ongoing work with government. The Institute is advising the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on the recently announced Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation.
