AI and data rise on list of top risk concerns – report

Risks relating to artificial intelligence and data feature in the top 10 of areas for concern for both UK experts and the general public for the first time, according to a new report. The research by AXA reveals that the UK public are more worried about the impact of AI than their European counterparts, who do not rank it as one of their top 10 concerns.

UK experts and the public also ranked cyber risks in their top three, alongside those surveyed in America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

From a list of potential risks that could impact the world over the next 10 years, risks related to AI and big data were ranked fifth by UK experts and 10th by the UK’s general population. The report highlights general concerns about technology, with the top four rapidly emerging risks all focused on this topic. In the UK, half of those questioned believe that technological advances create more risks than they solve.
