This section provides a selection of AI non-governmental and intergovernmental initiatives, which can be filtered by type of organization.

New interactive database of stakeholder initiatives coming soon...Stay tuned!

A number of tools, instruments and structured methods can facilitate the implementation of the AI Principles. The OECD is developing a live database to provide AI actors and policy makers with information on the latest tools to help ensure that AI systems in different contexts abide by the principles of human rights and fairness; transparency and explainability; robustness, security, and safety; and accountability. The database will use the structure developed by the OECD.AI working group on implementing trustworthy AI.
