November 3, 2017 at the conclusion of the Forum Responsible AI, held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, was announced the preliminary version of the Declaration, aiming to spark public debate and encourage a progressive and inclusive orientation to the development of AI. A year later, we unveiled a new version of the Declaration Responsible AI, enriched by the citizen experience and the expert perspectives from all horizons.

A panel of collaborators followed, regarding the scope of the Declaration in different sectors of activity, on national and international level.
