  • Asked by: Donald Cameron, MSP for Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 4 October 2023

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to develop an artificial intelligence strategy in relation to the culture sector, and how it plans to ensure that any such strategy is safe and ethical in its implementation.


Scotland’s AI Strategy , published in 2021, set out a vision for Scotland to become a leader in the development and use of trustworthy, ethical and inclusive AI. Creative Scotland were represented on the steering committee during its development.

The Scottish AI Alliance is tasked with the delivery of the strategy. They recently hosted a roundtable on encountering AI through art, and continue to host and promote events and engagement around the application and impact of AI in the culture sector.

As such, the Scottish Government has no plans to develop an artificial intelligence strategy specifically in relation to the culture sector.
