CIC National Capital (Ottawa): Here be Dragons: Lessons from China’s AI Strategy
January 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
The CIC National Capital Branch’s Asia Pacific Study Group invites you to its first event of 2019.
China’s AI ambitions have resulted in substantial economic investments on the part of the central government, but perhaps most interestingly, have been followed by policy changes and legal reviews designed to make China a more competitive jurisdiction for those private entities seeking to grow and advance the AI industry. These policy adjustments are very much in line with Chinese values, which are themselves not necessarily in keeping with existing global norms and nor what might be considered palpable more broadly. Yet with China rapidly approaching a state of global significance in the AI sector, Chinese policies towards AI will be increasingly important for rule-makers and rule-takers alike.
