THE ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY: A SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC ROLE
Electronic systems are present in a multitude of highly strategic sectors for Québec.
Electronic systems are the foundation of artificial intelligence. Without electronic systems, the link between the digital and analog world would simply not exist! Sensors, ubiquitous in all industries, generate the data required by artificial intelligence. These massive data are then transmitted for analysis and generate multitude of reactions and actions according to their processing. Electronic systems play a key role in the artificial intelligence value chain.
