Pre-B7 Summit Event – “AI: The Missing Piece of the Productivity Puzzle?”

May 15 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST

Pre B7 Summit Italy - Canadian Chamber in Italy

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Canadian Chamber in Italy, Amazon Web Services, Open Text and Telus, is pleased to present the next pre-B7 Summit event entitled “AI: the missing piece of the productivity puzzle?

The event will take place on May 15 from 16:00 to 20:00 at the Villa Agrippina Gran Meliá in Rome, part of the Leading Hotels of the World.

Context of the event – Pre B7 Summit

Two years ago, the G7 countries identified artificial intelligence as a tool to “generate economic growth that maximizes the benefits of digital technologies”. Currently, the disparity in the adoption of AI between nations is evident, with some moving faster than others. Our event is an opportunity to analyze global trends in AI adoption, reflect on emerging practices and opportunities and discuss pathways that can help G7 policymakers achieve the goal of boosting productivity growth through AI.

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to meet the members of the delegation of the Canadian Chamber in Italy, present in Italy at the B7 Summit, favoring a further opportunity for networking and exchange of ideas.
