Artificial intelligence – The next five years

What is artificial intelligence? It’s not just a business buzzword or the science fiction image of robot overlords in the distant future. Artificial intelligence (AI) is closer than you think and already affecting our everyday lives.

AI impacts businesses big and small. CIRA, just like you, is curious about AI and how it can benefit the future of business. This meet-up is an opportunity for CIRA to facilitate discussion on an important topic we’re all starting to explore.

The potential of AI and its benefits are huge, but where do you start?

Join us Monday, November 26th for a roundtable discussion with Samuel Witherspoon from IMRSV Data Labs and CIRA’s chief technology officer, Jacques Latour. This is your opportunity to learn about AI adoption in Canada and how it can benefit businesses and peoples’ lives.
