OECD urges countries to gear up for ‘governing with AI’

OECD countries are increasingly investing in better understanding the potential value of using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve public governance. The use of AI by the public sector can increase productivity, responsiveness of public services, and strengthen the accountability of governments. However, governments must also mitigate potential risks, building an enabling environment for trustworthy AI.

This policy paper outlines the key trends and policy challenges in the development, use, and deployment of AI in and by the public sector.

First, it discusses the potential benefits and specific risks associated with AI use in the public sector.

Second, it looks at how AI in the public sector can be used to improve productivity, responsiveness, and accountability.

Third, it provides an overview of the key policy issues and presents examples of how countries are addressing them across the OECD.
