AI ON A SOCIAL MISSION aims to foster collaboration between the scientific community and organizations with a social mission and to contribute to a favourable public policy climate for emerging applications in the community sector. We will discuss social impact of AI and be inspired by what AI can do for non profits.

CONNECT: Let’s create an environment conducive to more collaboration between the Montréal artificial intelligence and the non profit ecosystem.
INFORM: Let’s share information and allow a better understanding of the social impacts of artificial intelligence (eg employment, aging population aging, education, social programs)
INSPIRE: some start ups and NPOs will showcase what artificial intelligence can do for organizations and entrepreneurs with a social mission.
ACTION: In multidisciplinary discussion groups, let’s take a close look at the tools needed to offer better support to non profit initiatives and socially oriented enterprises. We can brainstorm and feed suggestions into the Montreal Declaration of ethical and responsable AI online portal.

Small multidisciplinary discussion groups in the afternoon will allow us to brainstorm together and offer concrete ways of achieving an equitable implementation of AI.

Scientific role: Data Science, Machine and Deep Learning practionners and researchers;
Social Mission role: Non-profits, social economy, health and education professionnals, community organizations serving the needs of the population and promoting an inclusive society,
Policy and Financing role: Governments, banking sector, angels, social economy funders, foundations, micro-credit.
Legal, political and Ethical role: Experts on the different legal forms of private companies, ethics, privacy, the social economy (coops and non-profits) and emerging models in the sharing economy.

You will notice the registration page has questions related to your field of study, your role and or area of work. By answering you allow us to create truly multidisciplinary discussions groups.

When? January, 25th and 26th 2018 from 8h30 A.M.
Where? William-Notman House
