Artificial Intelligence and Democratic values
Year of production: 2020
Artificial Intelligence and Democratic Values: The AI Social Contract Index is the first global survey to assess progress toward trustworthy AI. The AI Index 2020 has the following objectives:
- to document the AI policies and practices of influential countries, based on publicly available sources,
- to establish a methodology for the evaluation of AI policies and practices, based on global norms,
- to assess AI policies and practices based on this methodology and to provide a basis for comparative evaluation,
- to provide the basis for future evaluations,
- to ultimately encourage all countries to make real the promise of AI that is trustworthy, human-centric, and provides broad social benefit to all.
Artificial Intelligence and Democratic Values report focuses on human rights, rule of law, and democratic governance metrics. Endorsement and implementation of the OECD/G20 AI Principles is among the primary metrics. Opportunities for the public to participate in the formation of national AI policy, as well as the creation of independent agencies to address AI challenges, is also among the metrics. Patents, publications, investment, and employment impacts are important metrics for the AI economy, but they are not considered here.
The first edition of Artificial Intelligence and Democratic Values examined AI policies and practices in the Top 25 countries by GDP and other high impact countries. These countries are Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States. High impact countries include Estonia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Rwanda, and Singapore.
Artificial Intelligence and Democratic Values will be published on an annual basis and will evolve as country practices change and new issues emerge.
