Strategic Forum on Artificial Intelligence

Events The speech will be presented mainly in French.

In January 2018, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal held its first Strategic Forum on Artificial Intelligence in order to decode the impressive progress of AI, mobilize the business community and encourage the creation of a supercluster.

Following the resounding success of this first gathering, the Chamber held a second Strategic Forum on AI on February 18, 2019. This forum aimed to bring together the main AI players around common goals in order to solidify Montréal’s AI ecosystem.

After two successful editions, the Chamber is pleased to invite you to a third Forum, on February 24, 2020. This year we would like to facilitate synergy between different players in Montréal’s AI community in order to strengthen Montréal’s position as an AI hub.

This event will focus on accelerating corporate action and the adoption of AI and encourage the creation of new, innovative projects.

The day’s three pillars:

1/ AI, a flourishing ecosystem in Montréal
Montréal is a hub for deep learning and a leader in fundamental and applied research.

This academic strength gives the city a competitive edge, which continues to attract investments and talent from abroad. The challenge now is to create synergies between stakeholders from different industries, to accelerate the marketing of new products and to promote the emergence of local players within Montréal’s ecosystem.

Come meet Montréal’s main players in artificial intelligence.

2/ Integrating AI in your company or organization—it’s possible!
Artificial intelligence has many facets and levels of application. Regardless of your industry, AI offers new possibilities.

No matter your degree of knowledge on the subject, it’s time to prepare your organization for the successful adoption of AI.

3/ Solving social issues with AI
Environment, energy, health, cybersecurity: AI offers real solutions to the major challenges of tomorrow. Get inspired by leaders who are developing new applications and pushing the boundaries of AI.
