A federal government policy briefing on generative artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT warned that giving the public access to such technology could further hatred for Canada’s political leadership and threaten plans for a green transition of the economy.
Policy Horizons Canada, the Canadian government’s official think tank, delivered a briefing titled The Future of Generative AI: What could we see give years following the launch of ChatGPT? in May. Last week the document was published to the Government of Canada Publications website.
The document delves into implications generative AI technology would have for Canada at large in areas such as infrastructure, the economy and government.
“Generative AI could unleash scientific innovation, raise productivity, and change the way people find information. These technologies are also likely to create disruptions and challenges for multiple policy areas,” wrote report authors.
