Government AI Readiness Index reviews public sector AI in 194 countries
The South-East Asian city-state pipped the UK, the previous year’s winner, in the index compiled by consultants Oxford Insights. Reviewing progress on public sector AI in 194 countries, the ranking examines how well-placed nations are to take advantage of the benefits of AI in their internal operations and the delivery of public services.
The study highlights the variations between higher- and lower- or middle-income countries, with the former consistently achieving higher scores. The top five performers are Singapore, the UK, Germany, the United States, and Finland, whilst Africa and the Asia-Pacific countries crowd towards the foot of the listings.
