Artificial Intelligence (AI) will touch every industry. Like the advent of the Internet which threw businesses into a Digital Revolution, AI has the potential to drastically change and upend our traditional ways of doing things.

Canada has played a major role in the early days of AI. Today, Toronto is a major AI hub, home to higher education and research labs dedicated to advancing artificial intelligence research. Businesses are applying AI in unique ways that will have an immense impact on business.

Organized in collaboration with Big Data and AI Toronto 2019, join us to hear thought provoking talks from three AI expert speakers about how Artificial Intelligence can be put to work in your business, and participate in the panel discussions.
