The Government AI Readiness Index 2019: More Equal Implementation Needed to Close Global Inequalities in Artificial Intelligence

 

Over the past few months, Knowledge 4 All Foundation, a key partner in the Artificial Intelligence for Development (AI4D) initiative to advance AI in the Global South, partnered with Oxford Insights, an international public sector consultancy specialising in AI, and IDRC which prepared the second edition of the Government AI Readiness Index. This year’s index is more globally represented and expanded the scope to cover all UN countries. Having calculated scores for all 194 governments included in the report, Oxford Insights invited experts from each region to contribute commentary to help bring our findings to life with their insights and local knowledge.
