France Goulet
01:07:11
Is there an interest from both countries for the integration of AI in public administration?
Minh Kieu
01:07:15
How do you identify the discipline of a PI? for instance can someone from a School of Humanities, but specialises in computation, be identified as having Computation/Engineering background?
Blake Richards
01:07:24
What is the scope of "responsible AI" for this grant, and how important is it to the application? Example: would you consider an application where increased trustworthiness is a possible outcome of the research but not the major goal, per se? (sorry, resending this to everyone now...)
Bo Cao
01:07:25
How many proposals will be contacted to give a response? Thanks!
James Woodcock

Bo Cao
01:12:46
How many proposals will be contacted to give a response? Thanks!
Blake Richards
01:12:51
Hi, did you see my Q about responsible AI?
Thomas Pasquier

Ardhendu Behera
01:14:07
Criteria for ECR?
Jennifer Rowsell
01:14:24
Can the CAD and UK PI’s be from the same domain? One being social sciences and the other being humanities?
Blake Richards
01:14:25
I'll re-ask: What is the scope of "responsible AI" for this grant, and how important is it to the application? Example: would you consider an application where increased trustworthiness is a possible outcome of the research but not the major goal, per se?

Tuvi Orbach
01:15:00
Can SME contrinute IP technology ideas and management to the project and keep IP (without receiving any money from the project )?
Terrie Lynn Thompson
01:15:43
WRT budget — what about collaborative events/meetings — how to allocate budgets?
Deborah de Lange
01:15:54
I am a Canadian researcher on the social sciences/business side (with an engineering background) so, my UK partner PI likely needs to have the AI/ IT/engineering background. If you are with a UK university with strengths in AI simulations and optimization and have an interest in clean tech (renewable energy, sustainable transportation, environment & climate change), you could contact Professor Deborah de Lange (debbie.delange@ryerson.ca). I have interested UK and Canadian partners already, but we are allowed many university partners and I am not sure about the UK AI side right now so, we may need that strength added to the existing team. Look forward to hearing from you if interested.
Sami Tabbarah
01:16:02
We are Canadian researchers working on using AI to guide treatment decisions for breast cancer patients. Please email me at sami.tabbarah@sunnybrook.ca if any UK PIs are interested in collaboration
