An Interesting Policy Event Tomorrow at the Paris Machine Learning meetup

So tomorrow, the Paris Machine Learning meetup will host the third regular meetup of the season (and the fifth overall for this season). As usual we will feature several technical presentations and we will also have an introduction to the current work by the "Office parlementaire d'évaluation des choix scientifiques et technologiques (OPECST)" of the French Parliament by none other than a former minister and current Senator Dominique Gillot. The bipartisan commission (OPECST) was tasked by the French Parliament to do a report on Artificial Intelligence and they are coming to the meetup as part of their fact finding mission. Here is a generic introduction of the work being asked from the commission:
La commission étudie l'état de la recherche en intelligence artificielle et en technologies informatiques, les opportunités et les risques que représentent l’accélération des techniques d'IA, les relations entre recherche publique et recherche privée, ainsi que les enjeux éthiques, économiques, éducatifs et juridiques de l’intelligence artificielle. 

Pour celles et ceux qui ne pourraient pas parler à la sénatrice, un questionnaire en ligne est disponible et les réponses seront adressées aux deux rapporteurs et à l'administrateur qui suit le dossier IA.

 As the Chinese say, may we live in interesting times.
