“Christian Troncoso, policy director at BSA, The Software Alliance, an industry group, said certainty in the act means that companies will have greater confidence investing in the Canadian AI market. The uncertainty, Mr. Troncoso said, lies in the process of informational analysis, referring to the process of a computer analyzing data and patterns. Mr. Troncoso said a computer can be trained to detect objects in a photo by feeding a machine millions of copies of photographs until it can detect patterns and make predictions about objects in the new photo.”
