    Pour ceux qui craignent pour la planète, d'ici 10 à 20 ans, il n'y aura plus de trafic ni de bouchons comme on les connait aujourd'hui. Je sais que ça peut sembler incroyable pour certains, mais les véhicules (qui seront tous électriques) seront pour la plupart des transporteurs autonomes de personnes (multiples usagers avec multiples destinations), ils seront tous connectés les uns aux autres virtuellement, facilitant grandement les flots de circulation et éliminant les accidents complètement. Donc plus de pollution aux gaz, et plus de bouchons de circulation. L' accélération des développements en IA est exponentielle, pas linéaire. Les changements vont aller très vite. L'autre argument incontournable c'est qu'il faut développer le coeur de l'île de Montréal, pour contrecarrer l'étalement urbain vers les banlieues. Ce projet est une bonne occasion de le faire. Une autre belle annonce pour Montréal!
  2. My Big Apple - News from New York City

    $2.4 Billion Deal for Chelsea Market Enlarges Google’s New York Footprint Le deal: $1,600 le pied carré! Habsfan, qu'est-ce que t'en pense? It’s a tech takeover. Google, the tech company with a seemingly insatiable appetite for space in New York, is buying Chelsea Market, the blocklong Nabisco factory turned food mart, office building and tourist attraction, for about $2.4 billion, according to two executives who have been briefed on the deal and requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it. Chelsea Market sits directly across Ninth Avenue from the company’s headquarters at 111 Eighth Avenue, which is larger than the Empire State Building and covers the entire block between 15th and 16th Streets. But it is only the latest example of an internet behemoth, and even smaller tech companies, expanding rapidly in New York City. Amazon, Facebook, Salesforce, a cloud computing company, and Spotify, a music streaming service, are all enlarging their footprints here by hundreds of thousands of square feet. Employment at technology firms has grown three times faster in New York City than in the rest of the private sector, adding more than 50,000 jobs since the end of the recession in 2010, according to a report by the state comptroller. “The modern tech sector began on the West Coast when it was about developing new technology and programming,” said Scott Rechler, chairman of RXR Realty, a Google landlord at Pier 57, a new mixed-use space on the Hudson River that is scheduled to open this year. “It’s now about the implementation and application of technology. And that’s presented an opportunity for New York, the business capital of the world. The talent pool is here.” Google’s pending purchase of Chelsea Market was first reported by The Real Deal, a real estate publication. Google, Jamestown, the investment and management company that owns Chelsea Market, and its adviser, Douglas Harmon, of Cushman & Wakefield, declined to comment. But the executives briefed on the deal said the two companies had signed a $2.4 billion sales contract. The purchase comes with the right to make the building even larger by adding about eight stories, or 300,000 square feet. The current owner obtained the necessary zoning change in 2011 when it wanted to erect a 12-story hotel over the Buddakan restaurant, on Ninth Avenue. Neither side has made clear what Google’s plans for the building are, and whether the popular food market will stay in place. But getting rid of tenants with leases would be a long-term process. Tech employment in New York City reached 128,600 last year, according to the comptroller’s report. But analysts using a broader definition of tech put the total at nearly 326,000. The report — “The New York City Tech Ecosystem,” by HR&A Advisors — notes that roughly half the tech jobs are at employers with a main focus that is not technology, such as finance and media companies, or hospitals and government agencies. New York is one of 20 cities or regions in the running to become home to Amazon’s second headquarters, which could eventually generate 50,000 jobs. The city has sought to build the infrastructure the industry needs to grow, including Cornell Tech, a 12-acre engineering campus on Roosevelt Island. At the end of 2017, tech firms accounted for 29.3 million, or 8 percent, of the 398 million square feet of office space in New York City, according to CBRE, a real estate company. In a snapshot of recent tech-sector activity, those companies have leased or renewed leases for 21 million square feet of office space in the last 10 years alone. If telecom companies are included, that number jumps to 26.8 million. Nine years ago, tech firms had only 17.6 million square feet of office space, or 5 percent of the office market. The tech firms generally prefer industrial spaces to the brass and glass towers of Midtown. Chelsea Market, where Google already leases 400,000 square feet of space, is a former factory building with expansive floors. Amazon has taken office space in what was once a warehouse at 450 West 33rd Street, although the owner, Brookfield, recently gave the building a face-lift and glass walls. Facebook has grown substantially at 770 Broadway, a landmark cast-iron building that was once a department store, on an entire block bounded by Eighth and Ninth Streets, between Broadway and Lafayette Street. But that trend may be changing, said Mary Ann Tighe, a broker and chief executive of CBRE in the New York region. When companies grow and need a more robust infrastructure, she said, some tech firms are migrating to traditional office towers. Salesforce, the cloud computing company based in San Francisco, moved its three Manhattan offices into a 41-story skyscraper at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue. The Salesforce logo replaced the MetLife branding atop the building. And Spotify, the music streaming company, is moving from 620 Sixth Avenue and several other locations into nearly half-a-million square feet at the 4 World Trade Center skyscraper in Lower Manhattan. But it was Google that prompted real estate brokers, landlords, city officials and economists to sit up and take notice of the burgeoning tech sector a decade ago. In 2006, the company moved into 111 Eighth Avenue, a massive onetime shipping terminal, with tenants that included Verizon, Sprint, Web MD and The building sat atop a high-powered fiber artery snaking along Manhattan’s West Side. Employees used Razor scooters to navigate the blocklong corridors lined with work spaces, commissaries with free drinks and granola, and massage and game rooms. Google became a siren for other, smaller tech firms to move to the neighborhood, which was beginning to shrug off its industrial roots. In 2010, Google bought the building, also from Jamestown, for $1.8 billion, a breathtaking sum at the time. Not so long ago, blue-collar tenants had paid a very modest $6 per square foot for space there. But Google’s need for space continues unabated. The company has been unable to dislodge the other tenants at 111 Eighth Avenue as quickly as it had hoped. The company has leased large blocks of space nearby, at Pier 57; at 85 10th Avenue, another former Nabisco cookie factory, between 15th and 16th Streets; and at Chelsea Market. Facebook has about 5,000 employees now in the Chelsea neighborhood, occupying a total of 900,000 square feet. Owning Chelsea Market would enable the company to create a campus akin to its headquarters in California, albeit one that is more vertical. Chelsea Market, like 111 Eighth, has been a front-runner in the evolution of the Chelsea neighborhood from an industrial zone to an area known for inexpensive space for food producers, restaurants and office tenants, and now as a tech-sector hub.

  10. Armed with $102 Million in funding, Element AI Marches Onwards Element AI has very quickly established itself as a leader in the AI space — in your own words how would you describe what Element AI is, as well as yours and your team’s mission(s)? We offer an array of products and services that help large enterprises to transform their business to run on AI. Our platform focused on Enterprise AI, meaning that it uniquely deals with complex problems, relatively small amounts of data to train from, and very high-performance thresholds required by global organizations. We help our customers go from ideation, road mapping, implementation and continuous improvement/maintenance. We are the only company that possesses deep expertise and capabilities in the full AI spectrum, deep learning (Vision, NLP, etc.), Deep Reinforcement Learning, Operations Research, and many more… I’m always interested in learning about how folks define AI, if I walked up to you at an event and asked you, how do you define AI? What is your answer? I would describe it as any piece of software that takes care of a task by itself where the software has “evolved” the way to solve/execute by learning from experiences (data), and therefore can continue over time (exposure) to improve itself by executing the task.

    "startup activity has not yet resulted in any major IPOs, and Montreal still doesn’t have any “unicorns” — startup companies valued at more than $1 billion." C'est ce que je disais l'autre jour. On espère voir un, deux ou même 3 unicorns en AI `a Montréal dans les 5 prochaines années. Voici une liste de recents unicorns. On est encore très loin de Silicon Valley:
  12. Bon, faut se calmer le pompon un peu. Je serais d'accord avec ça quand les profs de Stanford et MIT déménageront à Montréal. Et Toronto est aussi reconnue que Montréal en AI. Mais Montréal est sur une lancée et la ville va se transformer très vite autour de AI à mon avis.
  13. Wow, Carnegie Mellon est très fort en AI et mathématiques. Ils viennent de perdre un gros morceau en M. Gordon. Ca va attirer plus de grosses pointures à Montreal sûrement.

    Ce qui est encourageant dans cette nouvelle, c'est le désir d'ériger une tour qui aura du panache. Elle ne sera pas la plus haute de la ville, mais au moins elle pourra se faire remarquer par son originalité. Enfin, c'est ce que j'espère. Et puis, j'ai aussi espoir que la tour à condos sera aussi spectaculaire. Une autre tour trophée pour monsieur Broccolini. Et on le remerciera de montrer aux autres développeurs le meilleur chemin à prendre: qualité architecturale = meilleurs retours sur l'investissements.
