Working in partnership with Wyser Ltd, AdviceUK have helped secure an Innovate UK grant for over £1m for the second phase of a UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) backed programme, to support the responsible adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI). AdviceUK are working as advisors on a project being led by Wyser Ltd, with the University of Bath, Citizens Advice Scotland and Acas all being involved.
The main goal of the programme is to reduce bias in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems –commonly known as voice recognition systems.
Liz Bayram, Chief Executive of AdviceUK, said: “As the largest support network for independent advice organisations in England, Scotland and Wales, we are delighted to be providing Wyser with strategic advice on this exciting new project. Many of our 700 members are grappling with the opportunities and challenges that AI presents. By supporting this project, AdviceUK will be supporting members and the wider sector play its part in ensuring all individuals can access the advice they need, exercise their rights and deal with any legal and social welfare problems they may face.”
