The OECD AI Policy Observatory: Artificial Intelligence Trends

Wow! What a great resource recommendation from Rob Robinson and his excellent ComplexDiscovery blog – The OECD AI Policy Observatory!

As Rob notes in his post here, “[t]he Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organization that brings together 37 member countries to promote economic growth and global trade. The OECD provides a forum for governments to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. It also conducts research and collects data on a wide range of issues, including economic growth, education, health, and environmental sustainability… One of the areas that the OECD provides research and analysis on is artificial intelligence and the policies and policy instruments from 69 countries and territories worldwide.”

To that end, the OECD makes a repository available of AI policy initiatives! The OECD AI Policy Observatory (OCED.AI) is a live repository of over 800 AI policy initiatives from 69 countries, territories, and the EU. It combines resources from across the OECD and its partners from all stakeholder groups. The repository facilitates dialogue and provides multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy analysis and data on AI’s areas of impact.

As Rob states: “The Observatory is an important resource for cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery professionals because it provides a wealth of information on national AI policies and initiatives. This information can help these professionals understand the regulations and best practices related to the use and development of AI in their respective fields. Additionally, the Observatory’s real-time, interactive database of AI policies and initiatives can be used to compare and update information on these topics. By staying up-to-date on national AI policies, professionals in the eDiscovery ecosystem can ensure that they are complying with relevant regulations and implementing best practices.”

In addition to AI policy initiatives, the site is a wealth of information about other AI resources too, such as working groups, AI principles, trends and data, AI terms & concepts, and other AI observatories and repositories. Regarding AI policy initiatives, the site provides groupings by policy areas (e.g., corporate governance, digital economy, innovation, science and technology) and the ability to obtain a listing of AI policies for each country/geographic area. For example, the US has 69 AI policies available here, and the EU has 60 policies available here!

The OECD AI Policy Observatory is a terrific resource, so hat tip to Rob for bringing it to our attention! BTW, ComplexD has a new logo icon has three distinct sections highlighting the brand’s focus on the cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery industries, which is at the top of this post! You can read more about it here!

So, what do you think? Do you think the OECD AI Policy Observatory will be a terrific resource for you? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
