The group, which represents CEOs of some of the country’s largest firms, said Bill C-11 should be amended to give organizations more scope to use anonymized information for business operations; limit the requirement that firms disclose when they’re using automated decision-making systems to instances where outcomes are significant or the AI is acting alone; and reduce administrative penalties, currently proposed at up to $25 million or five per cent of global revenues. The Business Council submitted the recommendations Monday to the House privacy committee. (The Logic)
