Jan 17, 2018

NEXT Canada has launched a web platform to deliver important communication tools to Canada's growing artificial intelligence community. Canada.ai will host the latest news and events impacting the Canadian AI sector.

The new platform provides aggregated artificial intelligence news, a directory of AI organizations across the country and a calendar of upcoming events for AI researchers, companies and startups. Canada.ai also includes a timeline, showing the growth of AI in Canada since its origins.

Alongside several of Canada's leading media groups, Digital Journal has partnered with Next Canada to provide news on all things AI, sourcing stories from its digital transformation publication DX Journal.

The web platform was spearheaded by Next Canada, but many different organizations from the AI community in Canada came together to get the project up and running: the Vector Institute, the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute, Borealis AI, Creative Destruction Lab, Element AI, Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms and the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research were among the groups that worked to create Canada.ai.
