The Information Commissioner’s Office is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. As a non-departmental public body, the ICO reports directly to UK Parliament and is sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The ICO has recently published new Big Data and Data Protection guidance which has been updated to take into account the advances made since its original publication in 2014.

This discussion paper looks at the implications of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning for data protection, explaining the ICO’s views.
