    The speed and proliferation of AI and algorithmic technology has far outpaced that of the development of the legislative frameworks to which to govern them, to ensure their appropriate, safe and permissive use. It is not suggested that the development of these technologies and integrations are thwarted or inhibited, but more that there is a holistic review and understanding of the complex integrations between the moral, ethical, technological and legal concepts that their use brings. Multiple approaches must be made, utilising top down legislative mechanisms, bottom up consumer and citizen led engagement approaches, and cross sector and industry led standardisation and frame working. Such a cyclical process would ensure that the continual development and evolution of the appropriate instruments keep in pace with technological development. And with such synergic pace, will bring allow such considerations to be made at the design phase technological solutions, rather than taking a reactionary and sometimes unknown approach. Afullunderstanding of new and emerging technologies is needed, how they interact and are interconnected, as well as their vulnerabilities, and causal effects, both direct and indirect, of the use of algorithmic and automated technology.
