The "Artificial Intelligence and Public Standards Report"  advocates for adherence to the Seven Principles of Public Life to ensure ethical use and public trust. It highlights the necessity for clear regulatory frameworks, transparency, and addressing data bias as AI technologies become increasingly integrated into public service delivery.

The "Artificial Intelligence and Public Standards Report," chaired by Lord Evans of Weardale and released in February 2020, reviews AI's integration in public sector services. It highlights AI's potential to innovate public services across various sectors like health, education, and policing, underlining the need for ethical use and public trust by following the Seven Principles of Public Life. The report points out challenges to openness, accountability, and objectivity posed by AI, particularly in transparency and data bias, and notes the UK's evolving but incomplete regulatory framework for AI in public service. Recommendations focus on establishing clear regulatory guidance, enhancing transparency, accountability, and addressing data bias to ensure AI's ethical deployment aligns with public interests and standards.
