Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Overview

Generative AI technologies have the potential to transform businesses and organizations across various industries. However, the adoption of these technologies requires a deep understanding of their potential benefits and risks, as well as the ethical considerations that must be considered.

This program will equip learners with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify potential use cases, understand ethical considerations and prepare teams and organizations for the adoption of Generative AI technologies, implement Generative AI technologies in the workplace, and effectively lead their teams through the change process. In the final module learners will create a comprehensive implementation plan for Generative AI technologies and reflect on their learning journey. 

Learners can enrol in the full program or individual modules. If learners are registering for individual modules they must complete modules one (1) through six (6) in numerical order.
