Laurentian establishes ad hoc committee to form recommendations on AI


Laurentian University’s senate has voted to establish an ad hoc committee on artificial intelligence (AI). The committee–which includes faculty, librarians, and the chief information officer–will work to develop policy recommendations on AI for December. Bay Today reports that an AI-generated rationale for the establishment of the ad hoc committee was included in the senate information package as a tongue-in-cheek gesture. Laurentian VP of Research Tammy Eger explained that it is important to develop policies on AI tools now to ensure that students, faculty, and staff are supported on AI use going forward.
