In an op-ed for The Globe and Mail, Centre for International Governance Innovation Senior Fellow Michel Girard writes about the ways to help infuse more data into Canada’s burgeoning artificial intelligence sector. While Canadian AI startups search for data, large tech companies use their resources to garner data to deploy their own AI resources. Girard believes a way to help this issue is for Canada to develop a set of universal standards. “Government, industry and stakeholders can work together to develop sector-specific open standards allowing for data sharing and utilization,” Girard writes. “Common standards would facilitate data sharing, reveal opportunities to lower costs and manage resources more effectively. Protocols can be designed to access and manage data flows from increasingly heterogenous sources, allowing AI firms to access and process multiple data sources and design better algorithms.”
