Committee will guide $100-million artificial intelligence hub in Quebec
The Quebec government announced Monday it has launched a committee composed of academics and business leaders to guide the creation of an artificial intelligence research hub in Quebec.

The 12-member committee will be co-chaired by Pierre Boivin, president and CEO of Claridge, and Université de Montréal rector Guy Breton.

The aim of the hub will be to promote research and innovation in the domain of artificial intelligence as well as the creation of related businesses.

Premier Philippe Couillard said the hub would allow Quebec and Montreal to position themselves as a scientific and economic centre for research, training and the creation of high technology products in the artificial intelligence sector.
