This event was among the first of its kind in Canada, designed to develop a shared understanding of the core technical concepts and historical context among multi-sectoral participants, and to encourage deliberation surrounding the cross-cutting challenges and public policy implications of AI. It explored changes in technical capabilities of AI, their commercial applications, and changes needed in how government responds and how sectors collaborate.
This report provides a summary of the opportunities and challenges that AI presents to policy makers, analyzing insights from guest speakers and facilitated participant discussions.
For an overview of the key concepts and cross-cutting issues discussed in this report, please see our Intro to AI for Policymakers: Understanding the shift.
