Text and Data Mining Open Letter

Open letter on Text and Data Mining (TDM) rights in the UK and impact on safe AI Model Training in the UK

Open letter signed by open data advocates highlighting critical need to clarify UK intellectual property laws to facilitate safe AI development and to support innovation with the UK being a favourable place to develop and use safe AI, by clarifying that public and legally accessed data is available for AI training and analysis in its code of practice.

UK open source advocates, including OpenUK, are urging the government to ensure AI technologies have ample access to public data to aid the development of the UK AI sector. OpenUK is a signatory of the joint letter highlighting the issue and provided a proposal for a code of practice to guide AI IP legislation supporting TDM.
