Jean Monnet University (UJM) and the University of Ottawa have been collaborating for several years. A team of CERCRID (Center for Critical Research on Law) researchers at UGM recently began a scientific collaboration with the University of Ottawa’s Law, Technology and Society Research Center within the framework of an IEA (International Emerging). Action) for two years. Joint venture supported by CNRS ” Towards a Franco-Canadian approach to artificial intelligence control. To study various initiatives aimed at providing a legal framework for AI and to consider other possible approaches to controlling AI, particularly in the areas of health and justice.
Canada and France have been collaborating on scientific research for many years, and the French Embassy in Canada created the France-Canada Research Fund in 2000. Most recently, in June 2020, countries created the Partnership Initiative Global Artificial Intelligence (PMIA or GPAI). Responsible development and use of AI, in accordance with OECD AI policy.
CNRS, a stakeholder in this collaboration, firmly believes there are six international research laboratories and an office at the University of Ottawa officially inaugurated last April.
Jack Fremont, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ottawa, said at the time:
“Researchers at the University of Ottawa and their CNRS partners have increased and diversified their research collaboration over the past decade. We are honored to host the Canadian Office of CNRS, which will encourage and promote international research across Canada. A
CERCRID, CNRS (UMR 5137) Joint Research Unit, spread over 2 sites: Saint-Etienne and Lyon. Created in 1982, it has been associated with CNRS since 1985 and has benefited from the co-supervision of Gene Monnet University and Lyon 2. It brings together lawyers of all specialties, who come under government law, private law or history. Of the law.
It welcomes teachers-researchers affiliated with the law faculty at Jean Monnet University in Saint-Etienne and teachers-researchers at IUT and Lyon in Saint-Etienne, mainly affiliated with the law faculty at Lumiere Leon 2 in the University. Lyon Institute for Labor Studies (IETL).
Franco-Canadian research project on the legal control of artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence has an undeniable impact on our environment, be it legal, economic or social. Because legal standards (national, European, or international) are not clear enough and precise, governments feel powerless in the face of strong corporate interests and, like international organizations, wonder about the best way to control AI.
Project ” Towards the Franco-Canadian approach to artificial intelligence control A, Which strengthens the established legal cooperation between UGM and the University of Ottawa, aims to enlighten them about the various initiatives implemented in this regard. According to UGM, ” Beyond the so-called “tough” law rules, the study will examine other methods of AI control, such as considering the “rules, rules and standards of professional conduct” dimensions.Relaxed law“” The study will focus specifically on justice and health.
For the past two years, it has been part of the International Emerging Action (IEA), an international collaboration tool shared by CNRS, working to explore new themes and new partnerships in short-term mission financing organizations, organizing work meetings, around a shared scientific project. The beginning of the initial joint research.
