Sightline at the 2018 G7 Multistakeholder Conference on AI with Prime Minister Trudeau


Sightline was proud to attend the 2018 G7 Multistakeholder Conference on Artificial Intelligence, December 6, 2018 in Montreal, Quebec.

 

During the 2018 G7 Ministerial Meeting on Preparing for the Jobs of the Future, innovation ministers agreed to convene a multistakeholder conference on artificial intelligence in Canada.

This one-day event built upon the G7 Innovation Ministers’ Statement on Artificial Intelligence to focus on how to enable environments that foster societal trust and the responsible adoption of AI, and build upon a common vision of human-centric AI.

Sightline was one of the about 150 participants selected by G7 partners who participated which included many of the greatest thinkers on AI - from both the public and private sectors, as well as from civil society, academia and research institutions - for a deeper exploration of practical perspectives to inform collective action.
