Advance Copy Just Arrived!

The first advanced copies of AI Québec have just arrived at our doorstep. Well done to Brahm, who managed to put an amazing snapshot of the Québec Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem together in this beautiful book, despite the challenging times we are currently living in.

AI Québec is the culmination of long hours of researching and curating the stories of Québec entrepreneurs, it is a shining example of how businesses continue to stand together in Québec and across the world.

Québec has fast become a world leader in Artificial Intelligence, with the Province investing heavily in the development of AI within its borders. This region is home to internationally renowned think tanks and major corporations pursuing groundbreaking innovations. We are enormously proud of the inaugural edition of AI Québec, co-produced and edited by Luc Sirois, Québec’s Chief Innovation Officer, and Prompt.

The book features over 300 pages of tech-enabled stories showcasing some of the top innovators, leaders, and thought leaders across Québec including Forum AI, Scale AI, The Quebec Innovation Council, Mila, Ivado, CEIM, and  Prompt, amongst many, many others. Enjoy some fascinating pieces from thought leaders including Yoshua Bengio (Full Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research at Université de Montreal, as well as the Founder and Scientific Director of Mila and the Scientific Director of Ivado), Hélène Desmarais, Co-Chair of the Board of Directors, Julien Billot (CEO, Scale AI), and Andrea Lodi (Professor Mathematical Optimization at Polytechnique Montréal), as well as many other prestigious members of the Québec AI ecosystem.

In Québec and in the pages of AI Québec alike, you’ll also find inspiring companies within the spheres of Academic Research, Healthcare & Medical Technologies, Fintech, Aviation, and Commerce to name a few, all pursuing their goals in Artificial Intelligence.
