How ready is your country/company/institution for AI? Try this self-assessment tool to find out the gaps and GET recommendations to speed up AI adoption:

AI Singapore developed the AI Readiness Index to measure an organization’s readiness to adopt and implement artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

This Index measures one’s readiness across 5 pillars and 12 dimensions, including Organizational, Ethics & Governance, Business Value, Data and Infrastructure.

5 Pillars of AIRI

Under each pillar, there are four levels of AI Readiness:

  • AI Unaware
  • AI Aware
  • AI Ready
  • AI Competent
What each of the levels mean

By evaluating one’s readiness across these dimensions, the AI Readiness Index provides a comprehensive GAP assessment of AI readiness. This information can be used by CEOs, policymakers, industry leaders, and other stakeholders to develop strategies and policies to promote the development and adoption of AI technologies.
