An AI regulation platform has been revealed as one of the ground-breaking initiatives to receive €2m funding from the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund following a rigorous, highly competitive process.

Funded until 2023, the initiative will be led by a consortium of leading data scientists, SMEs and technology experts. The partnership is led by Corlytics, the world leader in regulatory risk intelligence with CeADAR, Ireland’s Centre for Applied AI and digital consultancy Singlepoint Solutions.

The trained AI platform for regulation combines human expertise with artificial intelligence to demystify laws and regulations enabling firms to deliver effective regulatory outcomes while protecting consumers. Transformative Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will automate the monitoring, interpretation and risk assessment of laws and regulations across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions.

Corlytics will provide deep domain expertise in regulatory technology. CeADAR will contribute its advanced text analysis and data science industrial research capabilities. Singlepoint brings a wealth of digital transformation experience. The three organisations have a proven track record in collaborating, including Corlytics and Singlepoint’s successful digitisation of the FCA handbook, the first commercially available intelligent regulation anywhere in the world.
