About ASK AI
Since 2017, the Ask AI nonprofit has been dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of Canada's world-class artificial intelligence sector for an audience of researchers, policy-makers, and everyday professionals.
While the algorithms and decision-making tools that power artificial intelligence can be opaque, the outcomes they produce can be incredibly personal and impact billions of people world-wide. Ask AI is therefore committed to helping make the advancement of this technology as inclusive as possible.
Ask AI is committed to developing content and events that lead to a full erunderstanding of artificial intelligence among citizens and professionals, highlighting both its opportunities and risks. Our goal is to help overcome misunderstanding and skepticism with balanced and helpful information.
Artificial Intelligence is an invaluable tool in humanity's quest to unlock the benefits hidden within the unbelievable volume of data we produce as a species. Ask AI is excited about the potential for this nascent technology to help address climate change, precision health, and social inclusion.
