QC researchers investigate relationship between state regulation and AI

December 6, 2018

The École nationale d’administration publique has officially launched the Observatoire international sur les impacts sociétaux de l'intelligence artificielle et du numérique. Led by Lise Langlois, Director of the Institute of Applied Ethics at Laval Université, OIISIAN studies the potential impacts of Artificial Intelligence. According to a release, the research team will investigate three key connections between AI and the state: how AI transforms how states organize themselves; processes behind state regulatory mechanisms; and the linkage between state transformations and ethics. The release adds that OIISIAN will bring together over 160 researchers from QC, and that les trois Fonds de recherche du Québec will contribute $1.5M to the initiative over a five-year period. UQuébec (QC)
