AI Policies and Initiatives

Artificial intelligence (AI) policies and initiatives are gaining momentum in governments, companies, technical organisations, civil society and trade unions. Intergovernmental initiatives on AI are also emerging. This chapter collects AI policies, initiatives and strategies from different stakeholders at both national and international levels around the world. It finds that, in general, national government initiatives focus on using AI to improve productivity and competitiveness with actions plans to strengthen: i) factor conditions such as AI research capability; ii) demand conditions; iii) related and supporting industries; iv) firm strategy, structure and competition; as well as v) domestic governance and co-ordination. International initiatives include the OECD Recommendation of the Council on Artificial Intelligence, which represents the first intergovernmental policy guidelines for AI and identifies principles and policy priorities for responsible stewardship of trustworthy AI.
