About the AIAAIC Repository

An independent, open, public interest resource, the AIAAIC Repository details incidents and controversies driven by and relating to artificial intelligence, algorithms, and automation.


The AIAAIC Repository was started in June 2019 as a private, professional project to better understand the reputational risks of artificial intelligence, before evolving into a more comprehensive initiative that collects, dissects, examines, and divulges a broad range of incidents and issues posed by AI, algorithmic, and automation systems.


Nowadays the repository is the most comprehensive, detailed, and timely resource of its kind, and is used by researchers, academics, advocates, journalists, policymakers, and industry experts across the world looking to better understand the nature, risks and impacts of AI, algorithms, and automation.


The AIAAIC Repository is available as a Google Sheet and is steadily being added to this website.
