Canada gets specific on Privacy Regulation

Lery PointDuJour

Following the United States and European Union, #Canada looks to upgrade its #privacy #regulation in a detailed manner.

Après les États-Unis et l'Union européenne, Canada cherche à améliorer ses privacy regulation de manière détaillée.

The Canadian Digital Charter Implementation Act features specific areas such as the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act and the Artificial Intelligence Act.

The Canadian AI (Artificial Intelligence) Act may be the first of its kind having implications for #facial #recognition, resume review #bots, natural language processing and more. “This will not only promote confidence in the digital space but also ensure a safe, more inclusive and secure digital economy" Minister of #Innovation, #Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne said. AI bias will be a major concern should other countries follow what Canada is doing but it may be inevitable. In the #US, there has already been testimony before #Congress from the #FCC (Federal Communications Commission) regarding #AI bias and the need for regulation. The #AIWG (Artificial Intelligence Working Group) of the US, comprised of representatives that include Nageen Himayat from #Intel and David Tennenhouse of #VMware, are looking deeply into how AI & the entire Data #Ecosystem effects everyday Americans and how it can be curtailed to spur competition, innovation, and improve customer experience without reenacting the #Terminator movies.

Penalties for non-compliance in Canada are huge, the greater of 5% of global revenue or $25 million enforced by a specific Office of Privacy Commissioner. A serious bid for privacy.

Congratulations to 2022 #NBA Champion "Maple Jordan" #AndrewWiggins.
