The Governance of Artificial Intelligence

Date & time:

26 March, 2024 at 0900 EST



In March 2023, ICAO held a webinar on Artificial Intelligence (AI). In a year, a lot has happened on the AI scene, both on the front of the technology advancement, with the exponential rise in computing capabilities and in the area of governance, underpinned by the realization that the adequate framework should be established to allow for technologies to deploy their benefits to society at large. Join us on Tuesday, March 26 for a webinar that will focus on this latter element, the governance of AI.



Innovators, regulators, the industry and the research community.
