Amii Monthly News - October 2023

Hey there,

It’s almost time for TechAid!

TechTalks on October 20th is your chance to get a sneak peek into the future of AI while also making a positive impact on our community. 

This year’s event will support the vital work of our two charity partners, Boyle Street Community Services and Stollery Children’s Hospital.

Learn from six world-leading researchers, who will share their insights into the next big steps in AI research. You’ll hear about the latest in autonomous agents, machine learning in healthcare, how people and AI can work together efficiently, and more. 

Tickets are on sale now, with 100% of the proceeds going to our charity partners. Get yours before they’re gone. 

Attending TechTalks will help keep you up-to-date on the latest in the AI world. And that’s more important than ever — Deloitte Canada has just released a comprehensive look at Canada’s AI ecosystem and the opportunities that AI and machine learning offer. 

You can see how Amii’s work is part of the social and economic benefits that AI offers. 

Hope to see you at TechAid this year!

See you soon,
