“Developing the use of responsible artificial intelligence is a key part of our government’s plan to make Canada's economy stronger than ever. SCALE AI and ALL IN 2023 have set the table for more critical and timely discussions around advances in artificial intelligence. As Canada shows the world what we bring to the global AI ecosystem, it is imperative that we ensure adequate standards and safeguards for generative AI systems are in place. Our Voluntary AI Code of Conduct will keep Canada at the forefront of AI technology in a responsible way while bringing industry and government to work together on building trust to realize the full potential of AI.”
