Lixar Talks AI and the Government of Canada

Geoff Aucoin Podcast

This week we’re continuing our series on the hottest of topics – Artificial Intelligence. In this week’s episode, we have two Lixar experts coming in to discuss AI and the Government of Canada. Jonny Stevens and Shelley Fraser chat about some of Lixar’s work in that sphere as well as how we could see widespread adoption of the technology.

The Government of Canada is starting to see implementations of Artificial Intelligence for both automation of rote tasks as well as decision-making. With that adoption comes policy such as the Treasury Board’s Directive on Automated Decision Making.  In this discussion, we talk about open and transparent use of Artificial Intelligence and how it can benefit the public sector while respecting Canadians’ right to access information about the services provided to them.
