UAlberta, AWS partner to establish Artificial Intelligence Discovery Place

The University of Alberta is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to establish an Artificial Intelligence Discovery Place at UAlberta’s downtown Enterprise Square campus. The goal of the initiative is to democratize access to artificial intelligence (AI) technology to boost innovations and advancements in technology and education throughout Alberta. “We think AI is going to have enormous and potential application to industry, to education, to business, to research applications,” said UAlberta President Bill Flanagan. “There are some interesting and complex issues that are arising, and it’s very important that not only government be engaged, but also universities be thinking about the ethical and legal implications of AI.”
