ParlAmericas participated in the second edition of LegisTech

The Chamber of Deputies of Chile and Bússola Tech organized the second edition of LegisTech, titled “Artificial Intelligence in Parliaments,” which brought together parliamentary staff and experts in technology and innovation to analyze the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the legislative process.

The three-day conference featured sessions in which participants discussed key topics such as the implementation of AI tools in parliamentary services, legislative drafting, and records management. The discussions also addressed the ethical considerations of AI, the importance of recognizing and mitigating biases and stereotypes – particularly in relation to gender – in the development of AI models, and the inherent privacy risks. Sessions further explored the integration of AI into administrative tasks, voice recognition technologies, and predictive analytics.

ParlAmericas was represented by Anabella Zavagno, Deputy Director General; Luis Rojas, Deputy Secretary General of the Chamber of Deputies of Chile and General Coordinator of the ParlAmericas Parliamentary Staff Network on Open Parliament; and Christopher Henry, Director General of Digital Training and Innovation of the House of Commons of Canada and Regional Coordinator for North America of the Parliamentary Staff Network on Open Parliament.
