On June 5, the International Telecommunications Society will host its next webinar, “Ethical AI Governance: Are Companies and Governments Ready for the AI Revolution?”
The webinar is topical as many jurisdictions around the world explore legislation to control the deployment of artificial intelligence. The Government of Canada recently released “The Artificial Intelligence and Data Act (AIDA) – Companion document” about which Barry Sookman has written.
For the past few years, I have been keeping current on issues relevant to telecommunications professions by virtual attendance at these ITS webinars. This webinar will be hosted by the Ivey Business School at Western University, and will feature international experts on AI governance, including Dr. Richard Benjamins (Chief AI & Data Strategist at Telefonica), Professor Rachel Dunscombe (chief industry advisor at the Dedalus Group), Mr. Cameron Schuler (Chief Commercialization Officer & Vice President of Industry Innovation at the Vector Institute) and Dr. Paul Timmers (research associate at the University of Oxford’s Oxford Internet Institute).
The webinar abstract reads:
Rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) underscore the need for ethical and responsible AI governance to ensure humanity’s best interests. This webinar brings together four international experts to discuss key aspects of AI governance, including aligning organizational practices with authoritative guidance and addressing the complexities of responsible, ethical, and accountable AI. The speakers will explore crucial questions related to the role of governments and public policies in shaping AI’s future, driving AI adoption across industries, and maintaining transparency and accountability. This event presents a unique opportunity for government and corporate decision-makers to engage in informed discussions on AI regulation and governance, contributing to the development of a robust and ethical AI landscape.
Take an hour on June 5 at 10 am (Eastern) to learn more about Ethical AI governance. Registration is free.
I hope to see you online.
