Live data

This section leverages live data to show timely trends about where, how and at what rate AI is being developed and used and in which sectors.

These visualisations highlight patterns in AI-related questions on Stack Overflow, a popular question-and-answer platform for computer programmers and data scientists. Trends in AI knowledge flows provide insights into how countries share specialised AI knowledge over time, and the evolution of the technical community’s interest in AI topics.

Evolution of AI questions and answers

NOTE: It is important to highlight that data sources and methodologies may differ from those used in OECD research, and therefore results may vary. As such, this section includes full and transparent methodological information. Because methods for measuring AI are still evolving, there remain definitional and other issues that can influence empirical results. Efforts to develop clear definitions, taxonomies and classifications are underway, as are efforts to compile accurate and comparable indicators. Given the current evolving situation, showing trends in a timely manner based on transparent methodologies by partner institutions can be of value to policy makers.
