Room 212, Shaw Centre
In this session, the panel made up of AI industry experts and government organizations will share experiences around how AI can be incorporated into an Open Government model. Through open dialogue around best practices, challenges, opportunities, and success stories; this session will explore ways in which the AI private sector can help governments and other public sectors become smarter, more accurate, while increasing operational efficiencies.
The discussion will also explore guidelines that will empower governments to confidently and responsibly procure AI, as well as to explore how to best use governments’ significant buying power to drive private sector adoption of these standards.
The objective of this session is to provide participants with a deeper understanding of applying AI in government through a rich and insightful conversation, and a splash of healthy debate. It is our hope to inspire attendees to develop a framework that keeps AI transparent and maintaining accountability to citizens.
