A group of Canadian AI institutions have launched Canada.ai, a web platform showcasing Canada’s progress in this emerging industry.
Canada.ai will focus on the research being done in Canada, the leading startups and companies in the AI space, and events happening across the country. It aggregates top Canadian AI news, pulling stories from media partners like BetaKit, Techvibes and Digital Journal, and Canadian publications like The Globe and Mail. Canada.ai will also feature posts directly from Canada’s AI researchers and institutes.
“It’s no secret that artificial intelligence in Canada has reached a tipping point, and it’s more important than ever that we as Canadians shine a spotlight on our stories,” said Graham Taylor, Academic Director of NextAI and Associate Professor of Engineering at the University of Guelph and the Vector Institute. “The platform is a place for everyone in the AI community to share and take pride in our accomplishments.”
Canada.ai also features a comprehensive directory of the organizations researching, developing, and commercializing AI in the space. It will also include a timeline of the history of AI in Canada.
“Canada is home to several of the world’s most advanced AI organizations and companies, operating across the country from Montreal to Vancouver,” said Jean-Francois Gagné, co-founder and CEO of Element AI. “Canada.ai provides a space to celebrate all of those organizations and highlight wins as a community. Together, we can continue to push the boundaries of what Canada can accomplish with artificial intelligence, and secure our position as a leading force in the industry.”
