Indo-German cooperation on AI

Previously I noted Indo-French Bi-lateral cooperation on AI. Well now we have an Indo-German statement of cooperation. This statement aims towards a 2020 workshop in Berlin between agencies of each government and states that they will focus on mutual best practices. Best practices, one assumes, could include regulatory standards when governments are involved. Further aims include deployment in… Continue reading Indo-German cooperation on AI

Nothing, Eh.

I mentioned recently some US state initiatives on artificial intelligence. A further round up of those is here. Lots of potential regulatory first steps underway. Or at least discussions about it. So if the states are underway, what are Canadian provinces doing? Pick your favourite Canadian province and run a search to see if they are doing… Continue reading Nothing, Eh.

Canadian and EU definitions of Artificial Intelligence; which is better?

I wrote last week about an apparent legal definition of artificial intelligence in a Canadian treasury board directive. At about the same time, the EU was rolling out a discussion paper about a potential definition of AI that looks very much like the kind of thing you would start to insert in legal documents.

Did Canada roll out the first legal defintion of artificial intelligence?

The Canadian government, via its Treasury Board, now has a month old Directive on Automated Decision Making. The directive, applying to  federal government departments, is to guide the application of Automated Decision Systems.
