Online Event

Thursday 16 Sep 2021
From 11AM To 12PM

In collaboration with CIRANO, Forum IA Québec and CPMT




The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) is bringing about major technological and economic changes. New opportunities are emerging with the use of AI in business, but its integration poses challenges due to a lack of knowledge, a lack of confidence and a lack of internal skills. While hiring new AI expert talent is one solution, raising the skills of decision makers and workers to understand the value of AI and to use it responsibly is paramount. How do we ensure that decision makers and potential AI users across all sectors have the skills to understand the value and opportunities of AI?  How do we build such skills in the workplace? How should ethical and responsible principles be incorporated into AI training? What are the best training and knowledge transfer practices being implemented in AI ecosystems around the world?
