#CTS19: Artificial Intelligence

On Wednesday, June 5, Rita Trichur, Senior Editor – Report on Business at The Globe and Mail, reprised her role as moderator for the Artificial Intelligence panel at The 2019 Canadian Telecom Summit that looked at “Debating Human Autonomy vs. Human Innovation.”

The panel included:
•  Marc Bellini, CTO – Canada Market Team, Nokia
•  Seth Jamison, Principal Systems Architect for FlashBlade, Pure Storage
•  Raed Kadri, Director, Automotive Technology and Mobility Innovation, Ontario Centres of Excellence

As Rita says in her panel introduction, AI has become a buzzword with every sector experimenting with AI, in the belief that artificial intelligence will improve the human condition and improve economic prosperity so most people will be much better off. Detractors warn of a loss of control and perhaps losing some of our intelligence. The potential for misuse of AI is high.

What is clear is that Canada cannot afford to squander the AI opportunity. But we also can’t afford to get it wrong.

Should we embrace or fear what’s coming?

Our panelists have lots to say.
