Artificial Intelligence in the Public Sector

PRESENTED BY: Dr. Justin Longo, Research Lead, Digital Governance and Policy Analytics, CSIP

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies offer important opportunities for society, from medical care to driverless cars. But these technologies also raise troubling implications, including the potential for hidden biases, unexplainable decisions, the undermining of individual rights, widespread job displacement, and environmental impacts. At many points as we move forward, society will be presented with enticing technological opportunities that mask deeper challenges. Along the way, we will be building our future through the choices we make. It is possible for Canada to harness the power of innovative uses of AI, but with a principled approach that maintains the responsible exercise of discretionary authority-one that considers the justice and fairness implications of increasingly powerful machines.
