IP Osgoode’s founder and director, Professor Pina D’Agostino, along with Aviv Gaon and Ian Stedman, both of whom are PhD Candidates at Osgoode Hall Law School, are members of York University’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Society Task Force. D’Agostino, Gaon and Stedman are leading scholars in AI and the law.

The task force, sponsored by the Vice-President Academic and Provost, and the Vice-President Research and Innovation, will develop ideas and examine options for building and featuring York’s research strengths in the area of Artificial Intelligence.

This taskforce, co-chaired by D’Agostino and Lassonde School of Engineering and Faculty of Health Professor James Elder, will leverage collegial expertise, solicit advice and generate recommendations towards how York University can advance research and take advantage of research, scholarship and academic opportunities in this area.

As an independent and authoritative voice, which explores legal governance issues at the intersection of intellectual property and technology, the IP Osgoode team is looking forward to working closely with the task force to help develop AI scholarship, research and academic programs.

Following up on the huge success of IP Osgoode’s Bracing for Impact: The Artificial Intelligence Challenge event, members of IP Osgoode will be organizing another conference focused on AI and data governance in March 2019.
