The Future Society, in collaboration with the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) and the OECD, is conducting a survey on AI systems used to combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This survey is based on the OECD Framework for the Classification of AI Systems. In addition to being prompted for details about their AI systems, survey respondents will be asked questions pertaining to the robustness of the Framework itself; feedback will be provided to the OECD to support their public consultation.
This project builds off of research conducted last year by The Future Society and published in Responsible AI Pandemic Response—an analysis of the landscape of pandemic response-related AI initiatives, prepared on behalf of the GPAI AI & Pandemic Response Sub-group. Based on this report’s recommendations, this year, the Sub-group has launched the “AI-powered immediate response to pandemics” project. More information about the project and commentary from the analysts can be found here.
We welcome developers (or those associated with the development) of AI systems created or repurposed to aid COVID-19 pandemic response to complete this survey. We expect it to take 15-25 minutes to complete. Data collected via this survey will be shared on an open-access, GPAI-labeled repository. 1-3 of the most promising—in terms of impact, practicality, and scalability—classified AI systems will be selected by the GPAI AI & Pandemic Response Sub-group for support in some form (TBD).
