Event description

Recent developments in AI have already seen the emergence of “chip wars” between the US and China, comprehensive regulations proposed in the EU, and a campaign at the United Nations to ban killer robots, with more actions likely on the horizon.

How is AI currently impacting global dynamics? Where is the technology headed, and what might that mean for the future of international relations? And what kind of role could Canada play in the coming years?

Join us for a lively presentation and panel discussion to discuss the present and future of AI in international affairs!
