OTTAWA

Recent breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence promise to make our lives more comfortable and prosperous. But they also mean that AI has become an important source of economic and military power.

The United States and China are jockeying for dominance in the field. There are fears of a new arms race and the spread of so-called "killer robots". Some go so far as to worry that we will inadvertently stumble across an AI so powerful and beyond our control that it puts all of humanity at risk.

Are these threats serious or just science fiction? Should we try to regulate AI research and ban its military applications? As a leader in AI, what should Canada be doing?

Join thePANEL, as well as top AI experts and policy thinkers, as we debate the impact of this groundbreaking technology on international politics.
