OECD.AI Policy Observatory

  • Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
  • International
  • 2021
  • Scale-up project

Project overview

OECD.AI is an inclusive hub for public policy on AI, used by policymakers and other stakeholders in over 190 countries. OECD.AI has become a recognised centre for policy-oriented evidence, debate and guidance, supported by strong partnerships with all stakeholder groups. It provides evidence-based analysis on AI as a public good.

OECD.AI is a unique source of real-time data and visualisations on AI developments. Its database of AI policies from over 60 countries allows governments to compare policy responses and develop good practices.

OECD.AI measures our collective progress towards trustworthy AI; its network of experts and the “AI Wonk” blog facilitate collaborative AI policy discussions.

Presentation of the organization

The OECD is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. Its goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all. It draws on 60 years of experience and insights to better prepare the world of tomorrow. Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, the OECD works on establishing evidence-based international standards – including on Artificial Intelligence – and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, the OECD provides a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.

In 2019, the OECD AI Principles became the first intergovernmental standard on AI. The OECD AI Principles promote use of AI that is innovative and trustworthy and that respects human rights and democratic values.

How it works

OECD.AI aims to help countries encourage, nurture and monitor the development and use of trustworthy AI for the benefit of society. Building on the OECD AI Principles, OECD.AI combines its resources with those of partners to facilitate dialogue and provide multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy analysis on AI.

OECD.AI provides practical guidance on implementing the AI Principles; resources on public policy topics; live AI data from different sources, and a database of national AI policies built jointly with the European Commission. With the creation of the network of experts on AI and the “AI Wonk” blog, OECD.AI has become a space for dialogue and the sharing of ideas among AI experts from all stakeholder groups.


The OECD.AI Policy Observatory and its network of experts was launched in 2020:
  • OECD.AI is used by policymakers and other stakeholders in over 190 countries;
  • The OECD.AI’s live data section covers over 120 countries;
  • The OECD.AI network of experts counts 250+ members from diverse sectors and backgrounds.

2022 Outlook

In 2022, OECD.AI aims to extend its reach and geographic coverage, as well as the range of real-time indicators to inform AI policy development globally, linking the AI governance discussion to concrete actions at the national and international level. The goal: trustworthy AI for the benefit of all.
