On February 27, 2020, the OECD launched the OECD Policy Observatory on Artificial Intelligence, an online platform where governments and other stakeholders can share and shape public policies for responsible, trustworthy and beneficial AI.
This Observatory “aims to help countries encourage, nurture and monitor the responsible development of trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI) systems for the benefit of society”. The Observatory “is oriented around three core attributes”:
- Evidence-based analysis
- Global multi-stakeholder partnerships.
The Observatory provides a “real-time database of AI policies” oriented around four components:
- AI principles – the OECD AI principles and a practical guidance to implement them
- Policy areas
- Trends & data – the Observatory provides OECD and partner metrics
- Countries and Initiatives.
The OECD also provides a “valuable reference for international dialogue and collaboration on AI public policy issues”. Following a multi-stakeholder approach, the Observatory “seeks broad participation from interested policy communities from the OECD, partner countries, other public entities, international organisations and non-governmental stakeholders”.
