ICO to look at possible bias in AI recruitment systems

The Independent Commissioner’s Office is to look at potential bias in automated recruitment processes.

Job Description

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office is to consider the impact the use of Artificial Intelligence in recruitment could be having on neurodiverse people or ethnic minorities, who weren’t part of the testing for this software.

The plan is set out in ICO25, a three-year plan setting out the ICO’s regulatory approach and priorities.

Other priorities include looking at the impact of predatory marketing calls; looking at the use of algorithms within the benefits system; and ongoing support of children’s privacy.

Speaking at the launch of the plan, UK Information Commissioner John Edwards will say: “My most important objective is to safeguard and empower people, by upholding their information rights. Empowering people to confidently share their information to use the products and services that drive our economy and society.

“My office will focus our resources where we see data protection issues are disproportionately affecting already vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. The impact that we can have on people’s lives is the measure of our success. This is what modern data protection looks like, and it is what modern regulation looks like.”
