Montreal to host AI forum this spring

AI Forum:  Achieving business success with the use of artificial intelligence

Following a wildly successful first edition in 2017, C2 Montréal and Element AI will, once again, join forces to host the 2nd edition of the Artificial Intelligence Forum. Aiming to bring together some of the industry’s most important players, the event will take place from May 23 to May 25, 2018 at the Arsenal in Montreal. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) has quickly become a game changer in the tech and business worlds, and its effects are completely revolutionizing these industries.   The AI Forum’s organizers are Element AI, the most important research lab dedicated to AI and C2 Montréal, the unique conference that unites commerce and creativity.  Once again, C2’s flagship event will play host to the AI Forum, further positioning Montreal as an innovative hub in the field of AI.

Artificial intelligence is breaking barriers in a growing number of industries

“We now live in a world of transformative collisions. It is up to us to make it a positive one and AI is part of the equation. We are thrilled to announce the return of the AI Forum, and our continued partnership with the extraordinary team at Element AI” explains Richard St-Pierre, President of C2. “We know that artificial intelligence is breaking barriers in a growing number of industries. Every year, thousands of leaders from around the world gather at C2 Montréal to find solutions to existing problems and completely transform the way they do business. Thanks to the AI Forum, Element AI and C2 are actively contributing to the development of new opportunities for those who want  to be at the forefront of future technologies.”

“You don’t have to be an expert in artificial intelligence and machine learning to understand how much C2, Element AI, Montreal, and the international community benefited from last year’s collaboration. That’s why we’re excited to be expanding our C2 partnership at this year’s AI Forum where we’ll be engaging the best and brightest from around the world in meaningful conversations and master classes about how AI will continue to change the way we live and work.” Jean-François Gagné, Co-Founder and CEO of Element AI.

A forum on AI as part of a conference on creativity

The Artificial Intelligence Forum will look at the vast potential of AI while exploring the possibilities it harbors for the future. This year’s conferences and panels will cater to  company executives and leaders who want to leverage artificial intelligence as a business solution, those who want to better manage AI’s impact on their existing resources, as well as those who  strive to dig deeper into their understanding of this new technology.

Over the course of C2’s three day event, participants of the AI Forum will be able to delve into masterclasses and workshops specially designed to tackle specific problems with the help of notable experts in the field of AI. The Forum’s participants will also have access to brainstorming sessions, creative networking and learning methods and other innovative experiences that are an integral part of C2 Montreal.
