Oxford Insights are working with AI4D to create a unique Government AI Readiness Index, to provide an overall estimate for how prepared each country’s national government is for implementing AI in public service delivery. It comprises a set of input metrics, ranging from in-country digital skills and government innovation to existing data capabilities.

The Index highlights which countries have some way to go before they are ready for the AI revolution, and identifies possible areas of improvement for every Global SOUTH government, regardless of ranking. More news about the index coming soon!
