As the artificial intelligence space in Montreal heats up, a group of McGill student entrepreneurs are set to launch the McGill Artificial Intelligence Society.
The McGill AI Society describes themselves as “a community of passionate students [who are] all about learning, practicing and sharing knowledge of the increasingly interesting field of AI.”
Led by Théo Szymkowiak, a third year McGill Computer Science student and former CTO of Fractal (McGill X-1 Cohort 2016), the McGill AI Society aims to provide introductory and advanced classes on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence where members will learn how to build robots, code up image classifiers, learn about speech recognition, and much more.
McGill AI Society members will also have the opportunity to present their work and teach other students as well.
This society is open to all McGill students from every faculty. Interested McGill students can register to be part of the McGill AI Society here.
The launch of the McGill AI Society takes place Thursday, January 19, 2017 from 6PM-730PM in Trottier 3120 – Krieble Lab, Trottier Building, McGill University (630 University St, Montreal, QC H3A 2B2).
