The Mila Institute has announced that it has entered a three-year partnership with the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). The Mila Institute, which is a partnership between the Université de Montréal and McGill University with strong links to Polytechnique Montréal and HEC Montréal, will be developing “added-value” resources for BDC-backed businesses that are developing AI technologies. The resources are expected to give these companies an advantage in commercializing their offerings. “Montreal and Quebec have become AI hubs and local businesses have everything to gain from taking an interest in this technology and these talents, which hold extraordinary potential for them,” said Mila scientific director Yoshua Bengio. “With this partnership, BDC demonstrates its strong commitment to ambitious clients and portfolio companies.” Beta Kit Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
