Montreal Summit 2020

Hosted virtually from Canada by the Montreal Centre of Expertise (ICEMAI) on 3-4 December 2020, the Montreal Summit offered a chance for leading AI experts from around the world and GPAI member representatives to participate in sessions, networking opportunities and high-level meetings, including the first meetings of GPAI’s governance bodies: the GPAI Council and Steering Committee.

The summit also featured the inaugural GPAI multistakeholder expert groups plenary, which brought together over 200 leading AI experts from academia, civil society, industry, worker/trade union representatives, government, and international organizations to review the progress made by GPAI working groups to date and provide feedback to guide their future work plans.
