We are very excited to announce that McGill University is hosting the first and only Startup Weekend on the theme of Artificial Intelligence in Canada!
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour competition designed to provide an amazing experiential learning opportunity for AI enthusiasts, developers, designers, and business-minded individuals to come together to create a business idea. Our goal is to create an environment where passionate people can come together to get things done; to learn, network, bridge the gap between trades, expose potential and see actual results.
With major investment from both the government and the tech companies, Montreal is in a good position to become a world leader in AI as it is home to the biggest group of deep learning researchers in the world. It’s time to dive into AI now, but not many people know how to use it, let alone implement it in their products. We’re bringing together great mentors to help them step it up!
The event will be held on September 22-24, 2017 at the Thomson House (3650 McTavish) located on the campus of McGill University. With the partnership of The McGill Innovation Collective and the Post-Graduate Students’ Society of McGill University, we will be tapping into the specialized niche that is graduate students studying artificial intelligence but also the broader community that will be utilizing it.
