OECD.AI combines resources from across the OECD, its partners and all stakeholder groups. OECD.AI facilitates dialogue between stakeholders while providing multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy analysis in the areas where AI has the most impact.
As an inclusive platform for public policy on AI – the OECD AI Policy Observatory is oriented around three core attributes:
Global multi-stakeholder partnerships
Convening power & community: the OECD’s added value
As an international organisation spanning almost every public policy topic, the OECD can provide multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy analysis on AI across the full range of economic and social policy issues, as well as metrics and measurement. The OECD’s convening power and robust multi-stakeholder approach allows the facilitation of co-operation among the private sector, the technical community, civil society, academia, governments, the regulatory community and other international organisations. Moreover, the OECD’s global reach allows countries and stakeholders to compare policy responses, learn from each other’s experiences, monitor collective progress and develop good practices.
