Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance

The challenge of using AI for good governance urgently concerns public policy, administration and politics in democracies across the world. The goal of the Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance is to develop principles and practical policy recommendations to ensure the democratic use of AI for good governance. Most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a rapid influx of AI solutions. While intended for public good, these novel technologies bring with them challenges in assessing the suitability and legitimacy of these offerings to the forefront of international decision makers’ agendas. The mobilization of this field is unprecedented and demonstrates the need for policies around these products, their procurement, and implementation through governments. The Oxford Commission on AI and Good Governance will investigate the procurement and implementation challenges surrounding the use of AI for good governance faced by democracies around the world, identify best practices for evaluating and managing risks and benefits, and recommend strategies in an effort to take full advantage of technological capacities while mitigating potential harms of AI-enabled public policy. Drawing from input from experts across a wide range of geographic regions and areas of expertise, including stakeholders from government, industry, technical and civil society, OxCAIGG will bring forward applicable and relevant recommendations for the use of AI for good governance.
