Event description

Description

Artificial intelligence (A.I.) brings fundamental change in our lives, affecting everything from business to government; working life to personal time. As increasingly sophisticated AI systems are created and used more widely, the effects on our health are unclear.

Effects on labour markets and employment are popular areas of public concern and debate, but the potential societal effects of A.I. extend more broadly. Questions have been raised about fundamental and complex topics such as algorithmic bias, transparency, governance, and inclusion.

This panel will examine diverse topics including ethics, policymaking and the health of our cities.

Our speakers will provide an overview of key A.I. concepts, their cross-cutting policy implications, and consider what health equity considerations we must undertake when thinking about the use of AI in the GTA.

Speakers:

Jennifer Gibson – Director, University of Toronto’s Joint Centre for Bioethics

Vass Bednar Head of Public Policy, Delphia

Alison Paprica – Vice-President, Health Strategy and Partnerships, Vector Institute

Moderator:

Kwame McKenzie CEO, Wellesley Institute
