Is the definition of "AI system" by the OECD too broad?

Good question. For the FSD and OSD the target is the program or software, mentioned multiple times in the GNU Manifesto, whose meaning is (un)consciously recognized by practitioners. One could argue that those concepts are also quite vague in modern computing but let’s stick to AI.

I am still convinced that we should make the effort to have a clear target of what the freedoms refer to in the AI space. But I’d love to hear other opinions, too.

And I’d love to hear alternative proposals from you @fontana . The current OSAID starts by saying “this is what we’re talking about” (the AI system definition), followed by a condensed manifesto, then the freedoms, etc… Is your argument that we don’t need to define AI at all? How would you rephrase the manifesto?
