OECD Global Blockchain Policy Forum

Panel: AI, Blockchain and me: Digital identity and the new data ecosystem

Sep 24, 2021 | 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM


The amount of data created annually worldwide has grown exponentially and forecast to more than double between 2021 and 2025, driven by both the enhanced ability to capture of store information, and the demand for data from the expanding use and growing capacity of AI and other big-data analytical technologies. As highlighted in the upcoming OECD’s upcoming AI Systems Classification Framework, responsible and trustworthy AI requires quality inputs, while data ethics are becoming a useful touchstone for the technology’s regulation and governance. The value of cross-sector and cross-border data flows are also an important element to this ecosystem, and require robust governance arrangements, particularly for public data and for data relating to individuals. This discussion considers blockchain’s place in this ecosystem, particularly its ability to provide verifiable and auditable data, control access to data and promote transparency in the exchange of data over large networks, and the ramifications for approaches to AI and data at the national and international level.
