The availability of AI computing resources (“AI compute”) has emerged over recent years as a key enabler for economic growth and competitiveness. However, its measurement has received significantly less attention in policy circles. To address this policy gap, the OECD.AI Network of Experts created a dedicated Task Force on AI Compute to understand and measure national AI compute and equip policymakers with the data they need to make more evidence-based decisions.
Your answers to this survey provide precious input to the task force’s work in gathering first-hand information and data sources on existing metrics, proxies, indicators and frameworks used to measure AI compute and associated environmental impacts. The survey is intended for both users and suppliers of AI compute and/or those who have in-depth technical knowledge on the subject. The survey includes an optional section specifically on the environmental impacts of AI compute, for those with relevant expertise.
Many thanks in advance for your time! The survey should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.
Please note that partial or incomplete questions/survey submissions will still be considered by the task force.
About the OECD Task Force on AI Compute
The task force seeks to assist the OECD in creating a basic framework for understanding, measuring and benchmarking domestic AI computing resources by country. Participants include policy makers and entities in charge of AI computing resources as well as academia and key industry players. You can view the task force’s full membership here and read a recent article by the task force Co-Chairs on the OECD.AI Wonk. For further questions, please don't hesitate to contact AI@oecd.org.
