Amii Monthly News - July 2023

Hey there,

I hope you’re having a great summer with some time to recharge! Cam’s off on a well-deserved break today, and I’m happy to share our monthly Amii update with you.

We have a newly announced partnership with Protein Industries Canada!  

AI and machine learning have tremendous promise to transform the way we grow our food. This partnership with PIC will help companies in the plant-based food, feed and ingredient industries gain a better understanding of their data, improve productivity, optimize production, and empower their teams with in-demand AI skills. 

Applications are open now, with the first cohort set to begin in the fall. If you’re curious about the future of this field, check out this Upper Bound video featuring an update on our work with New Harvest related to cellular agriculture! 

And we’ve just had a record number of applicants for our Kickstart Program, which helps women and gender-diverse individuals build their skills for a career in artificial intelligence.

We're excited to meet this year's participants when things get underway in August!

See you soon,
