In the past four years, all developed countries have released their own national AI strategies and started to
implement them. While Japan, France, Germany and others share a vision for the “human-centred” development of AI, the definition can differ substantially from one country to another. The values on which each strategy relies, as well as the actors steering its implementation, have resulted in different visions for the integration of AI into society across the globe.

Given the potential of AI applications and the challenges they raise, the need for international co-ordination has been pointed out from an early stage.
