Artificial intelligence is changing the way government works.

Recent improvements in artificial intelligence (AI) have significantly increased the gap between government policy and leading practices. AI is changing norms and business models throughout society, demanding new and effective policy responses on subjects that are largely unprecedented.

This webinaris facilitated by AI industry professionals and is designed for policy practitioners in government who are looking to put AI to work for Canadians. The course is easily accessible for those with a limited baseline knowledge of AI while also providing relevant insights for those who have an intermediate skill level. Participants will have opportunities to share experiences and participate in discussions to widen their understanding of AI in the public sector context.

What you will gain

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the concepts and terminology at play in AI, such as “machine-learning”, “neural networks”, and “strong-AI”.
  • Learn about the fundamentals driving continued progress with AI and where the development of AI is likely to go next.
  • Learn about emerging challenges and risks coming from AI and its applications.
  • Understand the implications of this disruptive technology for the practical policy processes of your organization.
