The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) Council has recently adopted a new definition of Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is set to be included in the EU Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) outlining its scope.
The OECD initially proposed a set of principles for trustworthy AI policies in 2019, which included an earlier version of the definition of AI. Discussions on the new definition occurred mid-October during the OECD's Committee on Digital Economy Policy and Working Party on AI Governance.
The new definition reads: "An AI system is a machine-based system that, for explicit or implicit objectives, infers, from the input it receives, how to generate outputs such as predictions, content, recommendations, or decisions that [can] influence physical or virtual environments. Different AI systems vary in their levels of autonomy and adaptiveness after deployment."
