The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office - National Artificial Intelligence Strategy for Mexico

The UK Embassy in Mexico, with support from the Office of the Mexican President, commissioned Oxford Insights to draft a national AI strategy for the Government of Mexico. Mexico will be the first Latin American country, and among the first ten countries in the world, to publish a national AI strategy.

Working with our Mexican partners C Minds, we have interviewed Mexican experts in government, academia, startups and industry to help design a strategy that capitalises on Mexico’s unique circumstances. Our approach has included time spent in-country, public events, private focus groups, organising a reciprocal visit for Mexican officials, and conducting a range of additional qualitative and quantitative research.

Our findings and recommendations for Mexico’s adoption of AI can be found here.



Centre for Public Impact - Finding Legitimacy project

Oxford Insights partnered with with Thwaites Communications to work on a seven-month project for the Centre for Public Impact to explore the concept of legitimacy in government.

We helped to organise discussion events in Brussels, Brixton, New Delhi, Mexico City and Regina, Canada, bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to understand how citizens across the world view their governments. Alongside this, we curated an extensive series of articles exploring legitimacy from different perspectives.

Oxford Insights’ Government AI Readiness Index

We designed and published our own index to help answer the question: 'how ready are the governments of the OECD countries to implement AI for public service delivery'? 

Based on a combination of nine input metrics, ranging from in-country digital skills to government innovation, we calculated a score and rankings system for OECD governments. Our findings were picked up by media outlets and public officials around the world, including being cited by the UK PM Theresa May in her address at the 2018 World Economic Forum in Davos.
