The Bracing for Impact Webinar series is organized by IP Osgoode, in collaboration with the Harry Radzyner Law School at the IDC Herzliya in Israel and Microsoft Canada, and for this event, we are delighted to be collaborating with Alectra Inc. and its GRE&T Centre.

This timely webinar will address the environmental implications of artificial intelligence (AI) developments in recent years. AI can be a double-edged sword, and while it can make resources and information more accessible and solve some of our climate challenges, it also requires more energy to use and, as a result, increases our carbon footprint. Our panelists, from a wide range of expertise, will look closely at these issues and discuss ways to foster sustainability.

The event, chaired by Prof Pina D’Agostino, Founder & Director of IP Osgoode, will begin with welcoming remarks from York University VPRI Amir Asif and a keynote speech from the Ontario Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks, the Hon. David Piccini, in one of his first speaking engagements since his appointment to the role.

Dr. Aviv Gaon, IDC Herzliya will introduce and moderate the panel. Panelists include:
