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.

Policies & strategies

The ONE AI working group on national AI Policies (ONE PAI) is developing practical guidance for policy makers on a wide array of topics:

  • investing in AI R&D;
  • data, infrastructure, software & knowledge;
  • regulation, testbeds and documentation;
  • skills and labour markets; and
  • international co-operation.

It leverages lessons learned and analysis by other OECD bodies, as well as analysis of the database of national AI policies at OECD.AI. The working group is focusing on the practical implementation of the OECD AI Principles throughout the AI policy cycle for:

  1. Policy design – focusing on national AI governance policies and approaches;
  2. Policy implementation – focusing on lessons learned to date through national implementation examples;
  3. Policy intelligence – identifying different evaluation methods and monitoring exercises; and
  4. Approaches for international and multi-stakeholder co-operation on AI policy.

ONE PAI is co-chaired by:

Andras Hlács, Vice-Chair of the OECD Committee on Digital Economy Policy, and 

Michael Sellitto, Deputy Director, Stanford Institute for Human-Centred AI (HAI). 

The group’s virtual meetings every 3 to 4 weeks provide “deep dives” into national experience in implementing AI policies in practice and sharing lessons learned, good practices and challenges.

After one year of work, this working group published on 22 June 2021 the OECD “State of Implementation of the OECD AI Principles: Insights from National AI Policies”  report. This report looks at how countries are implementing the five recommendations to governments contained in the OECD AI Principles and examines emerging trends on AI policy.
