AI4Good Lab’s Demo Day showcases innovative AI applications for mental health, inclusiveness and more

Using machine learning to predict seizures, improve mental health, sniff out scams and make more sustainable transportation choices — these are just a few of the exciting projects showcased at AI4Good Lab's 2022 Demo Day.

Amii is proud to be an expansion partner for the AI4Good program, which brings together women and others whose genders are underrepresented in the AI industry for an intensive 7-week program that includes a machine-learning Bootcamp and mentoring from researchers and business leaders. This year’s program was the largest yet, with 90 participants taking part from 25 universities across Canada, including 29 in the Edmonton cohort hosted by Amii.

This year, in addition to Amii, AI4Good partnered with Toronto Metropolitan University to host thirteen teams across three regional cohorts: Montréal, Edmonton and Toronto.

Participants also work together to develop innovative, AI-driven projects to address social concerns. This past Tuesday, the program hosted its virtual Demo Day, held virtually on June 21, allowing teams to showcase their work and discuss future plans.

"Demo Day is the culmination of four weeks of education and three weeks of project development that brings together all the TAs, lecturers, speakers, mentors, sponsors, partners, and experts who've supported the participants along the way," says Wendy Halle, AI4Good's Interim Executive Director.

"The participants put their heart and soul into these projects and presentations. We are so proud of all that they have accomplished over the past seven weeks. Congratulations to the 2022 AI4Good Lab Cohort, who can now proudly call themselves alums!"
