Memorial University has received over $18M for two innovation and research-focused initiatives: the Centre for Analytics, Informatics and Research (CAIR) and the Accelerated Analytics and Machine Learning (AAML) project. CAIR will focus on processing complex data using high-performance computers, and AAML will gain insight from this data. IBM has made a $16M in-kind investment in the initiatives. Other funding includes $1.4M from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and $1.35M from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. “These significant investments will further enhance Memorial’s capacity in strategic areas, provide world-class scientific training opportunities for faculty and graduate students and allow Memorial to continue supporting the tremendous growth of the local technology industry,” said Memorial President Dr Vianne Timmons.
