The University of Toronto / University College London Virtual Workshop on AI Governance will bring together stakeholders from government, industry, and academia, specializing in areas such as computer science, records management, digital ethics, regulation, economics, and knowledge translation.

The goal of the workshop is to facilitate the interactions of policy makers and regulators, industry experts and academics and foster collaborations across disciplines and jurisdictions. We are interested in understanding how to promote human-centred AI through the development of governance frameworks that address the needs of a range of stakeholders. 

The workshop will develop a conversation around ethical frameworks and guiding principles that enable industry innovation whilst protecting society and that place ethical considerations at the heart of the balance between societal needs and citizen trust. We welcome contributions that address aspects of the following question: What form of ethical governance framework is needed to ensure that AI is neither over-controlled, to the detriment of innovation, nor under-controlled to the detriment of society and individual outcomes?

The AI Governance Workshop will take place by virtual means over two half days:  July 27 and 28, 2020, 9am to 1pm EDT or 2pm to 6pm BST. Further details can be found on the project website -
