In a monumental move, Minister François-Philippe Champagne has unveiled Canada’s Voluntary Code of Conduct for Advanced Generative AI Systems.
Effective immediately, the code sets guidelines for responsible development and management of AI technologies. Organizations are urged to integrate these measures into their AI operations.
This initiative complements Canada’s ongoing efforts to ensure responsible AI progression, notably the proposed Artificial Intelligence and Data Act (AIDA) within Bill C-27 since June 2022.
Acting as a pivotal interim solution, this code signifies Canada’s commitment to AI safety and ethics.
