SingularityU is returning to Canada on April 23 to 24, this time hosting its Summit in Edmonton.

The inaugural Summit was held in Toronto on October 2017, and highlighted emerging technologies in blockchain, healthtech, and AI with 1,300 attendees. For this Summit, organizers will work closely with Innovate Edmonton, a division of the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, to plan the event.

“With the inaugural SingularityU Canada summit last year, we saw the true strength of the Canadian tech and innovation community,” said Oren Berkovich, president and CEO of SingularityU Canada. “In choosing to come to Alberta, we are expanding the conversation and the community, to share the best of Canadian and International technology, and to highlight the leaders, creators, and innovators who are shaping Alberta, Canada, and the world.”

Speakers have yet to be announced.

“Edmonton is becoming a primary mover in the global tech community. And it is happening fast,” said Mayor Don Iveson. “Google has invested in Edmonton. Stantec just opened its door to the largest tower in Canada west of Toronto. We have the University of Alberta, NAIT, and the Advanced Technology Centre as well as numerous tech-led companies all leading the way in advanced research and innovation right here in Edmonton.”
