About the AIAAIC repository

An independent, free, open resource that is the most comprehensive, detailed, and up-to-date resource of its kind, the AIAAIC repository details 750+ incidents and controversies driven by and relating to AI, algorithms and automation.

  • Which sectors and countries are most exposed to AI incidents and controversies?

  • What are the principal triggers that turn an AI-driven or AI-related problem or issue into a public incident or controversy?

  • Which incidents and controversies result from inadequate, poor, or misleading AI transparency and openness?
