The Vector Institute has announced that it has extended its partnerships with its founding industry sponsors until 2027. The Vector Institute, which was established in partnership with the University of Toronto and includes a network of over 600 Canadian researchers and practitioners, will receive around $40M from industry partners. In turn, the extension will allow the institute to continue programs that provide industry sponsors with hands-on opportunities to engage with AI. “[Industry sponsors’] renewed commitment with Vector will help secure Canada’s leadership role in the field of AI, increasing our global competitiveness and improving the lives of all Canadians,” said Vector Institute President Garth Gibson.
