Amii Monthly News - June 2023

I hope you’ve had a great summer!

We’ve had a busy month here at Amii as we prepare for a buzzing fall season. 

One of the things I’m excited for is Scale AI’s ALL IN 2023 in Montreal from September 27-28. It’s shaping up to be an incredible event dedicated to everything going on in Canadian AI. Amii will be there, and we hope to see you there too!

ALL IN is a unique opportunity to bring together leaders and innovators in Canadian AI: startups and investors, industry players and leaders from research and academia. I’ll be part of a panel alongside our friends at CIFAR, MILA and Vector, so be sure to catch that. And you can connect with me and other Amii folks at the Amii Lounge.

ALL IN is a great place to learn about the potential of artificial intelligence. And if you’re a startup, another great way of exploring how AI can help you is our Machine Learning Exploration program. This free, five-week course enables you to discover how machine learning can impact your business and reach your goals. 

Applications for the program are now open. 

That’s it for right now, although we have a few more big things in the coming weeks I can’t wait to announce. And I hope to see you in Montréal for ALL IN.

See you soon,
