Why we’re doing this project

Recent technological advances have drastically improved the capabilities of artificial intelligence algorithms, and Canada is at the forefront of this wave. But, beyond research and commercialization opportunities, AI has the potential to fundamentally alter our society, with enormous potential consequences for public policy and government services.

Understanding this shift is critical to governments and policymakers as we move into a world that is increasingly influenced by technological change. Ontario has an opportunity to be a leader in the understanding and application of AI to public policy challenges.
