OECD Network of Experts on AI (ONE AI)

The OECD Network of Experts on AI (ONE AI) provides policy, technical and business expert input to inform OECD analysis and recommendations. It is a multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder group.

Classification & risk

Different types of AI systems raise very different policy opportunities and challenges. The OECD Network of Experts on AI working group on the Classification of AI (ONE CAI) is developing a user-friendly framework to classify AI systems.

The upcoming OECD AI Systems Classification Framework provides a structure for assessing and classifying AI systems according to their impact on public policy in areas covered by the OECD AI Principles including economic and social benefits; human rights, privacy and fairness; safety, security, and risk assessment; transparency; accountability; research; data, compute and technologies; labour and skills; and international cooperation.

The Framework builds on the conceptual view of a generic AI system established in previous OECD work. It identifies policy considerations associated with different AI systems’ attributes including the:

  1. System’s socio-economic context including its sector, application, and whether it constitutes a critical activity;
  2. Data/input of the AI system;
  3. AI model/technologies in use; and
  4. Task and action of the AI system.

ONE CAI is co-chaired by:

Marko Grobelnik (AI Researcher & Digital Champion, AI Lab, Slovenia Jozef Stefan Institute);

Dewey Murdick (Director of Data Science, Center for Security and Emerging Technology (CSET), School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University); and

Jack Clark (Policy Director, OpenAI).

The group meets virtually every 3 to 4 weeks.
