The Artificial Intelligence and Data Act: Video


[Music starts]

[Video clips of a person hitting the brew button on an automatic coffee maker, an individual using a self-checkout machine at a grocery store, a woman wheeling an e-bike, a man paying by tapping his phone and a man walking while typing on a phone, with smaller inset clips of a person entering credit card information on a smartphone, someone modifying pie charts on a tablet and concert-goers using smartphones to record the show. Zoom out on last inset clip, which is a panorama of a cityscape with superimposed graphics representing networks and data points.]

We are surrounded by rapidly advancing technology and increasing amounts of data. Today, artificial intelligence influences how we shop, how we work and even how we see the world around us.

[Video clips of a doctor showing patient an X-ray on a tablet, a farmer holding a tablet in a field, and an engineer with a laptop in front of power infrastructure.]

AI is transforming our economy and is tackling some of our toughest challenges, like fighting cancer, improving food production and cutting down on energy waste.

[Video clips of lines of code on a screen and time-lapse footage of people milling about in a square, moving around in an office building, ice skating, working on laptops in a library and crossing a busy downtown intersection.]

AI systems use large amounts of data to help us find solutions to these complex problems. And often, this data is about people—how we live, work, travel, learn and interact.

Artificial Intelligence and Data Act

With the new Artificial Intelligence and Data Act, the Government of Canada is proposing to regulate the design, development and deployment of AI systems in Canada.

[Video clips of data superimposed over person scrolling on a phone, a woman cradling her child as she looks at a thermometer and her phone, and a woman in front of a computer monitor displaying large amounts of information.]

This new law will make sure that these systems are safe and non-discriminatory and that they hold organizations accountable for how they develop and use these technologies.

[Video clips of a woman delivering a presentation and pointing at a large screen, a teacher instructing students holding tablets, and a man and two children gathered on a couch and looking at a tablet.]

For businesses, this means clear rules to help them innovate and realize the full potential of AI.
For Canadians, it means that AI systems used in Canada will be safe and developed with their best interest in mind.
