Deep Learning: AI Regulation Comes into Focus (Two-part Series)

On April 14, 2021, the Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) released a new report, Regulating AI: Critical Issues and Choices. On April 21, 2021, the European Commission released a proposal for new draft regulatory framework for Artificial Intelligence (AI) that would be, if adopted in its current form, as far-reaching in its implication for business as the EU GDPR.

With the global AI market poised for exponential growth, both of these releases are significant and highlight the importance of its regulation with a focus to instill trust and set standards for the responsible deployment of artificial intelligence.

The two-part webinar presentation discussed what the proposed regulation of artificial intelligence may mean for your organization.
