Canadians receive an invitation to participate in an Open Dialogue on Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

A series of virtual workshops will be taking place across Canada on Artificial Intelligence (AI). With the recent light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its global challenges in health care as well as issues on climate change, AI is believed to have a transformational value to help solve some of these challenges.

The Government of Canada’s Advisory Council on AI Public Awareness Working Group in collaboration with CIFAR and Algora Lab (Université de Montréal) will be launching Open Dialogue: Artificial Intelligence in Canada, a virtual workshop series to better uncover what the public thinks of Artificial Intelligence. This will be held from March 30 to April 30, 2021 and will include sessions for both the youth and indigenous communities. All Canadians are encouraged to register and share their thoughts, experiences, and understanding of AI.

All the data that will be captured from this event will be added to the final report by the Public Awareness Working Group which will be turned over to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. This report will be made public on the Advisory Council on Artificial Intelligence website by summer 2021.

“Artificial intelligence holds tremendous promise for the future of our country. Our government is committed to making sure all people living in Canada are able to take advantage of the benefits of AI while understanding the potential risks, such as privacy and security. Gaining a greater understanding of Canadians’ feelings about and understanding of AI will be crucial to inform how we can best support AI innovation and economic growth”, according to Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.
