The collaboration drives technological innovation while evoking Clio’s roots in Edmonton. Now headquartered in BC, Clio was originally founded in Edmonton, Alberta in 2008. Personal ties further enrich these connections, as Clio's CEO, Jack Newton, pursued his master’s degree in ML under Amii Fellow & Canada CIFAR AI Chair Russ Griener.

Newton emphasized this lineage in his recent keynote at the Upper Bound conference, celebrating Edmonton as a centre of technological innovation with Amii at the forefront. This educational and professional linkage connects Clio's leadership directly with Amii's academic and technological prowess and underscores the significance of Edmonton’s development, as highlighted in the conference.

This collaboration is set to drive technological advancement, stimulate economic growth, and strengthen academic ties within Edmonton and beyond—reinforcing Edmonton's status as an established tech hub and showcasing the transformative impacts of this partnership on both the local and global stages.
