Stakeholder TypeIntergovernmental

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. Our goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all. We draw on almost 60 years of experience and insights to better prepare the world of tomorrow.

Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.

Enabling effective AI policies: Launch of the OECD Framework for Classifying AI Systems

March 3, 2022clock60mins

The OECD.AI Network of Experts is launching a user-friendly framework that will allow policy makers to classify different types of applied AI systems. The framework helps distinguish AI applications according to their potential impact on individuals, society and the planet. Participants will discuss the tool in detail and present concrete examples of how to apply the framework. The panel will also look ahead and discuss the next step for this work: designing an AI risk assessment method building on the Framework.

OECD Framework for Classifying AI Systems: two page overview

The framework classifies AI systems along five dimensions: People & Planet, Economic Context, Data & Input, AI Model and Task & Output. Each one has its own properties and attributes that help assess policy considerations of particular AI systems. Stakeholders are involved in or affected by AI systems, while AI actors play active roles according to each dimension and throughout an AI system’s lifecycle. The framework allows users to zoom in on specific risks that are typical of AI, such as bias, explainability and robustness yet it is generic in nature. It facilitates nuanced and precise policy debate. The framework can also help develop policies and regulations since AI system characteristics influence the technical and procedural measures they need for implementation. The framework promotes a common understanding of AI by identifying the features of AI systems that matter most. Both in and out of government, the framework can inform registries or inventories by guiding work to describe systems and the basic characteristics of algorithms or automated decision systems.

Brochure: OECD Work on Implementing Trustworthy AI

This flyer outlines the OECD's work on implementing trustworthy artificial intelligence (AI), in relationship to the OECD Artificial Intelligence Principles for Trustworthy AI. This work happens around two key initiatives that are underway at the OECD to implement the AI Principles. The first concentrates on building and sharing the evidence and data on AI policies, while the second focuses on developing tools and practical guidance to facilitate implementation.October 19, 2021
