Event Description
Organized by a committee led by Angela McLean of the University of Oxford and Ajay Agrawal of the University of Toronto, this public event is the capstone of a broader symposium that will draw together an international group of government, industry, academic, and stakeholder interest groups to discuss and identify key areas of national and international policy on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems where international collaboration would be most beneficial.

Among the topics to be discussed are:
·         the impacts of AI on the global economy and social cohesion;
·         ethical and privacy considerations surrounding its development;
·         the public and private institutional responses to the development of this rapidly changing technology;
·         what role governments, companies, and international institutions can play in its careful stewardship; and
·         what is needed in order to foster international cooperation.
 
The event will feature a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
