Artificial Intelligence in East Asia

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to bring major changes to everything we do – and governments around the world are racing to seize this opportunity. As Canada prepares for the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in what many call ‘the Asian Century,’ it is necessary to understand how Asian states are approaching AI. This new APF Canada webinar with the Foundation’s Dongwoo Kim, Program Specialist, Technology Policy, opens with a discussion on East Asia’s AI policies and their implications for Canada, and is largely based on Kim’s July 2019 report published by APF Canada.
