The Coalition for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) invites you on October 25th, from 4 pm to 5 pm, online, for an exclusive conference on the challenges relating to culture and AI.  The conference will be given in French, with simultaneous translation into English available.

On September 29th, over 70 organizations from all sectors of creation and cultural industries in France signed a letter in “Le Monde” addressing the “need to encourage the development of artificial intelligence systems while respecting literary and artistic property rights” and “establishing the principle of data transparency used by machines as a prerequisite for world-class AI.” The Union Syndicale de la Production Audiovisuelle (USPA) and the Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers (SACD) were among the signatories. Iris Bucher of the USPA and Guillaume Prieur of the SACD, visiting Ottawa, will present during a virtual conference the demands of the French cultural sector regarding copyright. They will also more broadly address recent developments in the reflection on the regulation of AI in France. 


  • Iris Bucher, Producer, President, Union Syndicale de la Production Audiovisuelle (USPA) 
  • Guillaume Prieur, Director of Institutional Affairs, Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers (SACD) 


  • Chloé Sondervorst, Producer, CBC/Radio-Canada
