Deputy Director (Projects), Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation

Policy Fellow, Centre for Science and Policy

Sam Cannicott is Head of the Policy & Projects team at the UK Government’s Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation. In this role he oversees the Centre’s collaborative work with other organisations, supporting them to develop and deploy data driven technology responsibly. His project portfolio includes work with police forces, the Ministry of Defence, local authorities and the Department for Education. Before joining the Centre, Sam worked in the New Zealand civil service where he led a public engagement programme exploring citizens’ views of how data about them should be used and shared.

He has previously worked in multiple policy roles with a particular focus on the education sector.

Questions

  • 1. How can the state, when considering regulation as well as the deployment of AI in public services, consistently evaluate potential risks or harms against the benefits of deploying particular data driven technologies?
  • 2. How should we define public benefit and consider it along side privacy when it comes to sharing data and developing or deploying data driven technologies?
  • 3. How can data and predictive analytics be used responsibly to incentivize healthy life choices?
  • 4. How should consent be addressed when it comes to the deployment of connected devices in the public space and public services (e.g. smartcities, transportation, care homes)?
  • 5. How should we approach accountability, explainability and transparency when it comes to the deployment of AI by defence, security and intelligence agencies?
