AI Governance: Towards a Polycentric Model

Artificial intelligence (AI) governance is currently siloed, duplicated and inefficiently allocated among stakeholders. A polycentric model posits AI governance as a spiderweb, with states occupying a central role and creatively arbitrating among a plurality of interests. The project aims to equip governments with tools to fulfill their responsibilities as stewards of the public good in the AI space.
