AI in Cabinet Office

Some interesting information beginning to appear, e.g., an Algorithmic Transparency Recording Standard (ATRS) for automated document review to detect ROT (redundant, outdated, and trivial information) for deletion (see here – you may want to copy-paste it into Excel for ease of reading).

There is also more information beginning to appear (see also follow up) on the Red Box Copilot, an approach to using AI to help prepare ministerial papers. Alex Burghart, Parliamentary Secretary (Cabinet Office) writes (24 January 2024):

“The Red Box Copilot has been made available to the Private Offices of Minister Burghart, of the Cabinet Secretary [Simon Case], and of the Chief Operating Officer of the Civil Service [Alex Chisholm], in which it is either currently or will shortly be going through more formal testing.”
