Welcome to this weeks Knowledge Collection

Artificial intelligence in recruitment, dark patterns and in the built environment

The Information Commissioner's Office has announced plans to investigate the potential discrimination risk from employer use of artificial intelligence (AI) in recruitment processes. AI also has a role to play in "dark patterns" (manipulative software interfaces) and we consider the legal issues and risks of these in our webinar next week.

AI is increasingly playing its part in driving efficiency in our complex data-driven urban environments, which we explore in a webinar next week, featuring a panel of experts including guests from global investment group PGIM and the UK's centre for data science, The Alan Turing Institute.

To strengthen resilience against hostile cyberattacks, the UK government has consulted on a draft regulation and code of practice intended to address security risks to public telecoms networks and services.

Next week, we host a webinar that considers the regulatory risks in staffing supply chains and what HMRC and other regulators can claim from end users of contingent workers. HMRC may be taking a more active approach also with regard to anti-money laundering compliance, having updated its guidance for estate and letting agency businesses.
