Over the last few years, the AI and cloud ecosystem in Alberta has grown rapidly. There are lots of organizations that are ready to support you in your tech journey, however, sometimes it is hard to tell if they are the right match. 

This panel discussion on local AI resources is aimed at innovators, entrepreneurs, and ecosystem support providers who are seeking the know-how, tools, and support to develop their artificial intelligence projects and DIY capacity. Following this panel, attendees can expect to have a better understanding of the fit of Alberta’s AI service providers/not-for-profits and how they can better leverage them.


Thank you to the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) for sponsoring the AI/ML track as part of Edmonton Startup Week.

Over the past few years we have seen and heard a lot about the use of machine learning and data science. Now more than ever, organizations of all sizes from startups to large scale corporations are looking at ways they can benefit by applying these technologies to their data.

However, as your business or organization dives into these areas, you likely have questions. You might be wondering:

  • Am I ready?
  • How do I start?
  • How do I measure success?
  • Who do I need to add to my team?

As part of Startup Edmonton's "Startup Week" the data science team from Cybera will provide you with an introductory overview into data science. They will cover how you can apply it in your area of expertise, share resources that you can leverage, and discuss what you may need to start your own data science project. We’ll also share success stories from Alberta organizations currently using data science and provide "real world" examples of how this practice can be applied.
