En anglais seulement (Aperçu de la page 24)


As a part of the Autonomy Through Cyberjustice Technologies (ACT) partnership with the Cyberjustice Laboratory at the University of Montreal, the Winkler Institute continues to explore online dispute resolution as a tool to achieve access to justice.

This year’s annual meeting, titled “ACT Project Year 3: Interim Assessment and Directions for the Future,” occurred across two consecutive days. Day 1, which took place on June 14, 2021 began with preliminary remarks delivered by Professor Karim Benyekhlef, the president of ACT. He outlined the agenda of this year’s meeting and discussed the Mid-term report follow-up, ACT’s third-year retrospective, and the upcoming International Conference happening in March 2022. The participants were then given the option to attend three breakout rooms covering subjects such as assessment of AI’s state in the legal sector, accessibility and vulnerability in the technology design, and virtual justice amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Day 2 of this event which took place on June 15, 2021 followed a similar structure. The plenary discussion began by comparing AI regulation across the US, Europe, and Canada. Mr. Charles Morgan from McCarthy Tétrault LLP provided some insightful remarks about Canada’s approach to AI regulation, where he highlighted how the Canadian practice, similar to its European counterpart, focuses on the societal consequences of AI regulation while underscoring the importance of principles and regulations, such as PIPEDA in informing our nation’s approach on this matter. Akin to Day 1, participants had the option to attend breakout rooms, where Canadian scholars and professionals, such as Professor Ryad Titah from HEC Montréal and Professor Benoît Dupont from Université de Montréal spoke about ethical issues and risks associated with implanting AI technologies in the justice system respectively.

This two-day meeting came to an end with the final plenary session outlining the direction of ACT’s subproject for the next three years.
