Panel Organized by: Queen's University

Proper management of Canada’s renewable and non-renewable natural resources – including land, air, water, and diversity of plants and animals – is critical to maintaining our quality of life. To do so effectively, we must employ new tools to monitor, model, and manage these resources. What role will artificial intelligence play in scientific decision-making leading to thoughtful policy? Can AI accelerate solutions to climate change, sustainable development and conservation efforts while minimizing damage and costs of exploration and exploitation? What are the barriers to using AI to support responsible and safe economic development - and protection - of Canada’s natural resources?
