Join us at the CBC Stage in Edmonton City Centre Mall for a showcase of our city's unique entrepreneurial identity, startup community & culture of innovation!

We’ve all heard of Boston Dynamics and the fascinating work they are doing to make lifelike AI bots that can open doors, do handsprings, and eventually take over the world in a post-apocalyptic action scene, but what we often neglect to discuss is that this type of AI is far from the norm of what’s being built in the tech sector. Some of the world's best talent is doing AI research in Edmonton, and while we aren't building the world's first computer that can think and act for itself, we are building incredible companies using innovative artificial intelligence solutions.

Sit down with Cory Janssen, CEO of AltaML, Craig Knox, CTO of DrugBank and Patrick Pilarski, Amii Fellow and Associate Professor at the UofA to learn about the real life ways that any industry can integrate AI into their company. Whether it be to create internal efficiencies, optimize a business process, or advance and scale their operations, the founders of these fast-growing Edmonton companies will chat about unsexy AI and the integral role it plays in the innovation of their businesses.

Thank you to our presenting partners:
