Building off its recent investments in the Canadian artificial intelligence (AI) ecosystem, Borealis AI today announced it is expanding its network of labs across Canada into Vancouver. The new research centre will focus on computer vision, a subfield of machine learning that trains computers to see, process and understand the visual world. It is expected to open in the fall of this year.
Canada’s “Big Three” AI cities (Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton) have dominated headlines for the past year. But with our country's reputation for academic excellence in machine learning research, it was only a matter of time before a new crop of technical towns emerged.
Continuing its commitment to academic excellence in fundamental research in artificial intelligence (AI), Borealis AI is launching the Borealis AI Graduate Fellowship Program, which will offer financial support to domestic and international students wishing to pursue graduate-level work in the fields of machine learning or artificial intelligence at a Canadian university.
The Machine Learning frameworks we’ve used at Borealis AI have varied according to individual preference. But as our applied team grows, we’re finding that a preference-based system has certain shortcomings that have led to inefficiencies and delays in our research projects.
Borealis AI is continuing to expand its artificial intelligence research team across Canada with the addition of Professor Pascal Poupart of the University of Waterloo and Professor Marcus Brubaker of York University. Both join as senior researchers.
