  We Establish a national AI strategy and institutional foundation for a safe AI era.

The Department of AI Policy identifies various policy agendas in response to changes in the global AI technology environment and supports the establishment of national AI policies by analysing future trends from a mid- to long-term perspective. It operates a collaborative system for the establishment of national AI policies, including assessing the social impact of the expansion of AI use, responding to social problems that may arise, identifying barriers to expansion and proposing remedies, and conducting research on ethics and stability to improve reliability.

It also provides knowledge information services such as digital policy research, national informatization white papers, diagnosis and analysis of social issues, and information society statistics, and analyses artificial intelligence issues and policy status based on data, and investigates the level of artificial intelligence in Korea.

For the efficient implementation of national informatisation projects such as national tasks, artificial intelligence transformation and digital innovation, we support the informatisation budget and propose policy directions to ensure financial stability. In addition, we support the safe entry into the AI era by discovering and diagnosing legal and institutional issues due to changes in the technological environment and laying an institutional foundation to lead the introduction and convergence of artificial intelligence in the national society.
