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.
