Artificial Intelligence: Québec City at the Heart of the Action

Artificial intelligence is a hot topic. In the Québec City region, we do more than simply anticipate AI’s evolution: we shape it, develop it and apply it. With strong capabilities in the capture and analysis of physical-world data and advanced fundamental research guided by ethics, Québec City has all the resources to transform an AI concept into a viable and efficient solution.

The entire AI and data community meets every year during the Semaine numériQc event to exchange, learn and discover the latest technological advances from here and elsewhere.

A Portrait of Québec City's Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem

With a wide variety of areas of application, a high level of collaboration from partners, and an impressive theoretical and applied research force, Québec City's artificial intelligence ecosystem has everything it takes to succeed and stand out!

Training in Artificial Intelligence

In addition to making a major contribution to research in AI, Université Laval offers several training programs in this field to help shape the future generation, a generation apt to innovate and face the challenges of this fast-growing sector. Two master’s programs are focused especially on skill development for designing, developing, implementing and managing solutions that use artificial intelligence techniques:

Through continuing education, Cégep de Sainte-Foy offers several ways to develop and improve one’s knowledge in big data, business intelligence and artificial intelligence. Here are some of the programs:

the research in AI in QUeBEC city

With over 100 researchers using and implementing AI technologies, the greater Québec City area has a breadth of cutting-edge expertise in fundamental and applied research. Several college technology centres, research centres and institutes use AI as the core of their research tools. They support businesses throughout the province as they incorporate AI into their products and services. 

A leader in the field of AI, Université Laval’s Intelligence and Data Institute is the spearhead of the region’s expertise in AI research thanks to its four areas of intervention that are aligned with the region’s key clusters: Physical Environment, Methods of Artificial Intelligence and Data Processing, Health and Life Sciences, and Ethics, Confidentiality and Social Acceptability. Regarding this last axis, the institute can rely on experts from the International Observatory on the Societal Impacts of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Technologies, also based in Université Laval.
