From January 29 to June 11, 2021, ten webinars will be presented by IID (Institute Intelligence and Data) at Université Laval as part of the regular programming for the winter-spring 2021 season. This series of conferences offers presentations open to anyone interested in issues associated with AI, on a theme which focuses on confidentiality and access to data.
“This theme has imposed itself for this third series of public webinars: after all, issues relating to the protection of our data are at the heart of the development and application of technologies linked to artificial intelligence!”, says Schallum Pierre, the IID scientific and ethics officer who organized the programming of the series.
Participants will therefore be invited to explore the many facets of confidentiality and security challenges associated with AI, together with experts from academia and industry.
Some conferences will focus on intelligence and data protection in research and innovation contexts. Other webinars will provide the audience with more technical introductions – for example, on cybersecurity, DevSecOp or residual privacy. Finally, some presentations will focus on applications of AI and data technologies – from autonomous vehicles to conversational tools.
Almost 1500 participants during the Fall 2020 program
The webinars are open to everyone, presented virtually through the Zoom platform and, in some cases, subsequently made available on YouTube.
“Last fall, IID offered eight webinars on various issues associated with artificial intelligence and data science, which attracted almost 1500 registered participants from all walks of life – academia, industry and the general public. We hope that this new series will attract the interest of the audience once again!” said Lynda Robitaille, Administrative Director of IID (Institute Intelligence and Data).
Registration is now open for this new season of webinars.
Webinars are presented on Fridays, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Each presentation is followed by a question period.
