    I came across this article “British government quietly sacks entire board of independent AI advisers”
    Details athttps://therecord.media/uk-disbands-ai-advisory-board-cdei-rishi-sunak
    Does anyone have more information on why the entire Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CEDI) Advisory Board is removed? 
    How will this make the United Kingdom a world leader in AI governance?
    How does this impact the credibility of the UK in Responsible AI ? 
    The United Kingdom’s credibility on Responsible AI is dependent on the UK government’s ability to deliver a world-leading regulatory framework and laws in the UK. The UK government must strengthen its domestic proposals for regulation if it wants to be a world leader in AI governance. The EU is well ahead in global AI leadership with its E.U.’s AI Act. 
    UK Government need to regulate the Big Tech companies to protect democracy, protect human rights and prevent corruption.

    OpenAI Lobbied the E.U. to Water Down AI Regulation 
    https://time.com/6288245/openai-eu-lobbying-ai-act/ 
    What steps are UK government taking to prevent lobbying by AI and Big Tech vendors ? Are there any guidelines in the UK for policymakers, civil servants if they have shares/investment in tech companies (for example, conflict of interest of benefiting from profits in shares in tech companies ) ? 
    Big Tech and AI companies are getting even more powerful than governments. Will this lead to the rise of Billionaire Tech CEOs as the most powerful rulers of the world in the future? What will be the impact of this for humanity?
    The United Kingdom’s credibility on AI regulation is dependent on the UK government’s ability to deliver a world-leading regulatory framework and laws in the UK. The UK government must strengthen its domestic proposals for regulation if it wants to be taken seriously by other countries on AI . The EU is well ahead in global AI leadership with its E.U.’s AI Act. 
    Governments need to regulate the Big Tech companies to protect democracy, protect human rights and prevent corruption.
