What is PRAID?

The Perception Research and Artificial Intelligence Development (PRAID) Conference aims to spearhead a collaborative effort to unravel the complexities of AI perception and align it more closely with human understanding.


We’re excited to share our interdisciplinary and diverse line-up of speakers from universities across Canada and around the world. Some you may recognize locally from Queen’s. Others you’ll be discovering for the first time here.

Balancing Innovation and Responsibility

Embark on a captivating journey into the realm of AI perception. As our speakers dissect the ethical, social, and philosophical dimensions of AI systems, we'll uncover how AI perception intersects with disciplines far beyond technology, influencing everything from healthcare practices to legal frameworks, and shaping the very fabric of society. Together, we will explore the need for caution in navigating its future.
