"The government risks undermining faith in AI unless it becomes more open about its own use of the technology, campaigners have warned.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has sought to position the UK as a leader in designing new AI rules at a global level.
But privacy campaigners say its own use of AI-driven systems is too opaque and risks discrimination.

It has been signed by civil liberties organisations including Liberty, Big Brother Watch, Open Rights Group and Statewatch, as well as a number of migrant rights groups and digital rights lawyers."
