The work that we do at Borealis AI impacts millions of people across Canada and beyond. The AI ecosystem is growing and thriving. New and diverse perspectives, awareness of challenges specific to local communities, backgrounds, and commitment to making a difference are needed today more than ever.

Let’s SOLVE it is a Borealis AI mentorship program that provides undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds with mentorship, contacts, training and guidance they would need to make their project a reality. Interested? All you need is a good idea, a team of peers, a strong sense of curiosity, and commitment to making a difference.

Applications are now open!

We’re looking for teams of 3 to 5 undergraduate students with ideas on how AI / ML could be used to tackle a specific community problem. Here’s how the program works:

  1. The mentorship program is free and will be conducted virtually this year. With this new program, we aim to support students from a diversity of backgrounds, geographic locations and universities.
  2. The program runs from October 1st to December 2nd, designed to fall within the school semester.
  3. You’ll need to commit about 10 hours per week during that time.
  4. This program is open to all undergraduate students at all Canadian universities. You don’t need to be enrolled in a Computer Sciences program – if team members have some basic programming knowledge, this will help; but specific experience using AI or ML isn’t necessary.
  5. The application process closes at 11:59pm ET on August 29th 2021.

Give this semester more meaning and purpose outside of the course curriculum. As the interest in AI/ML grows, it is our hope that with support from Borealis AI, students can take ideas and make them happen, using cutting-edge technology and resources we can provide.

The new Let’s SOLVE it mentorship program is among our key initiatives that Borealis AI and RBC support, along with Borealis AI Fellowship program for post-grad students and our Internship program for Masters-level students. Our goal is to encourage diversity, innovation, and nurture the AI leaders of tomorrow.
