Panel Organized by: Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada & UK Research and Innovation – Economic and Social Research Council

The broader societal, cultural and economic implications of AI are multifaceted and not confined to national boundaries. Canada’s and the United Kingdom’s AI strategies recognize the importance of these implications and strive to support their full inclusion in the design and development of AI tools and technologies. Organized by SSHRC and UKRI-ESRC, this panel represents key stakeholders from Canada and the UK and aims to discuss key questions with regard to the societal, cultural and economic implications of AI and explore research and interdisciplinary approaches in this space.

Les implications sociétales, culturelles et économiques plus larges de l'IA sont multiformes et ne se limitent pas aux frontières nationales. Les stratégies du Canada et du Royaume-Uni en matière d'IA reconnaissent l'importance de ces répercussions et s'efforcent d'appuyer leur pleine intégration dans la conception et le développement des outils et des technologies d'IA. Organisé par le CRSH et l'UKRI-ESRC,  ce panel représente des intervenants clés du Canada et du Royaume-Uni et vise à discuter de questions clés concernant les répercussions sociétales, culturelles et économiques de l'IA et à explorer la recherche et les approches interdisciplinaires dans ce domaine.
