G7 Multistakeholder Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Thursday, December 6, 2018 | Montreal

Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a major economic opportunity for Canadians and the Government of Canada is making the most of it.

During the 2018 G7 Ministerial Meeting on Preparing for the Jobs of the Future, innovation ministers agreed to convene a multistakeholder conference on artificial intelligence in Canada in the fall.

This one-day event built upon the G7 Innovation Ministers' Statement on Artificial Intelligence to focus on how to enable environments that foster societal trust and the responsible adoption of AI, and build upon a common vision of human-centric AI. About 150 participants selected by G7 partners participated in the conference, including many of the greatest thinkers on AI from both the public and private sectors, as well as from civil society, academia and research institutions for a deeper exploration of practical perspectives to inform collective action.


The event included presentations by leading AI experts and breakout sessions on the topic of "Enabling the Responsible Adoption of AI."
