As artificial intelligence (AI) tools mature and become more widespread, the Government of Canada is increasingly considering whether AI should be a part of technology-enabled processes aimed at improving citizen services, advising on policy, and streamlining operations.

This event will examine the implementation of machine learning tools and technologies within the Government of Canada, and explore the skills, data, infrastructure, planning and leadership required for success. It will focus on how to use AI to streamline and synthesize departmental data holdings as a crucial first step for most AI use cases.

Participants will gain a better understanding of how AI is being used in the federal government today, and the conditions and considerations needed to ensure effective AI-enabled projects.
