21.02.2019, 13:00 Uhr, Kanadische Botschaft, Leipziger Platz 17, 10117 Berlin

Building Synapses of Transatlantic AI Cooperation

The GCC 2019 Part 1 will investigate the readiness of Germany's and Canada's industry and research infrastructure for more Artificial Intelligence and their approaches to implement AI into core industrial and societal processes. We will compare initiatives paving the way to increase the "Artificial Intelligence Quotient", AIQ, of the two countries and we will look into economic opportunities for business applications related to AI. The GCC will contrast visions with concerns, technological state of the art with policies; the GCC will showcase existing cooperation between Canada and Germany and will help identifying potential for future transatlantic collaboration. The GCC will kick-off with the following focus:

AI Landscape in Canada and Germany – A comparison of the two eco-systems in Canada and Germany including an overview of the key players and major trendsetters in the field / Highlight of recent initiatives, existing infrastructure for research and innovation, governmental and private investment, regulatory and ethical aspects. Central elements of the discussion will include:

  • Canada's AI supercluster initiative for AI in supply chains and the provincial and federal commitments for advancing Canada AI competence
  • Germany's public private partnership DFKI (German Research Centre for AI) as a platform to transfer AI research into industry
  • Montréal's leading role in promoting an ethically responsible development of AI
  • Comparison of Canada and Germany with other aspiring nations to lead the AI movement

Certification of AI: Standards for Collaboration in Intelligent Mobility – At the example of intelligent mobility, we will discuss the aspect of Artificial Intelligence applications in (safety) critical environments. The discussion will address the need to find standardization and certifications methods to verify the safe behavior of complex systems relying on artificial intelligence which per se is not deterministic. Central aspects will be:

  • Approaches to introduce certification methods in Germany and Canada
  • Challenges imposed by regulations for development and testing of autonomous vehicles
  • Cybersecurity and safety aspects
  • Standardization as enabler for economic exploitation of AI solution and transatlantic cooperation
