LindbergMTL a posté un sujet dans Nouvelles économiquesJe pense qu'on devrait commencer un fil sur l'intelligence artificielle à Montréal. Nous allons voir de grands changements dans nos vies grâce a l"IA, et Montréal sera méconnaissable dans 10 ans grâce à son leadership dans ce domaine. Technology services leader GlobalStep comes to Montréal Montréal, Canada | October 23th, 2017 Company intends to leverage new Montréal base to provide services to its customers globally GlobalStep, a world leader in games quality assurance, data analytics and software testing based in Dallas, TX, is establishing a major presence in Montréal as part of a global expansion program. “Montréal is a great location with a tremendous creative ecosystem for the games industry, a large pool of talent, and a multi-lingual and multi-cultural environment. We’re proud to now be a part of it,” said Gagan Ahluwalia, Chief Executive Officer of GlobalStep. “Our new operations in Montréal will add localization capability to our portfolio of services as well as greater flexibility and geographic reach in serving our customers. Some of the initiatives we are considering in Montréal include the further development of Artificial Intelligence in data analytics for video games.” Hubert Bolduc, President, and CEO of Montréal International, welcomed GlobalStep’s decision to establish itself in Montréal. “This further reaffirms Montréal’s position as a growing, globally recognized, technology services centre of excellence, especially in such fields as video games and artificial intelligence. GlobalStep is very impressed with our high-quality educational institutions and available talent and intends to use Montréal as a springboard for its future growth.” “The arrival of GlobalStep, a quality assurance specialist, confirms the Québec ecosystem’s appeal for the video game industry,” said Pierre Gabriel Côté, President and CEO of Investissement Québec. “Our international team has done some remarkable work to raise the awareness of Quebec’s industry. GlobalStep’s arrival will create new high-quality jobs and allow them to take on more international mandates from Montréal.” To enhance its presence in Montréal, GlobalStep has acquired Bug-Tracker Inc., a games testing studio that specializes in games localization, functionality and certification and has 200 employees at offices on Pie-IX Blvd. The combined entity, to be known as GlobalStep, will be able to provide customers a more comprehensive suite of services including Data Analytics, Test Automation and smart manual testing to mitigate development risk. “This acquisition allows us to accelerate our business expansion by leveraging our newly established Montréal base and we look forward to expand the team to service our growing customer base,” said Mr. Ahluwalia. http://globalstep.com/news-events-detail/listing/26
MartinMtl a posté un sujet dans Discussions généralesFacebook to Open Artificial Intelligence Center in Montreal Facebook Inc. plans to announce the opening of a new artificial intelligence center in Montreal on Friday, marking the latest move by a U.S. firm to tap into Canada’s expertise in the technology, according to two people familiar with the matter. The move will allow the social networking giant to tap into a hotbed of AI talent in and around the city. Joelle Pineau, the co-director of McGill University’s Reasoning and Learning Lab, and the incoming president of the International Machine Learning Society, will lead the lab, according to a report from The Globe and Mail. She’ll be joined by Pascal Vincent, an associate professor at the University of Montreal. Cutting edge AI talent is hard to come by, and Montreal is home to researchers who are working on some of the latest techniques in deep learning. The city is home to the Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms (MILA), a machine learning lab headed by Yoshua Bengio, one of the pioneers in the field. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is slated to speak tomorrow morning at an event in Montreal hosted by Facebook AI Research, according to an itinerary posted by his press office today. The topic of those remarks as well as the purpose of the event are both unclear. Facebook is far from the only tech giant opening up shop in Montreal. Google already has an office in the city focused on machine learning, and Microsoft recently acquired a Montreal-based startup that specializes in deep learning. Element AI, which raised a whopping $102 million earlier this year to build a business that helps other organizations implement and deploy artificial intelligence, is headquartered in the city and has garnered investment from Microsoft Ventures, Intel Capital and others. Facebook already has a presence in Montreal, with a sales office that was created to work with Quebec residents. The company has two other offices in Canada, with one in Toronto and one in Vancouver.

Le Philosophe a posté un sujet dans VisionsBonjour à tous, J'ai eu une idée suite à l'annonce de l'ouverture d'un nouveau centre IA de Facebook à Montréal: pourquoi ne pas combiner deux des grandes forces de Montréal en créant un Festival annuel sur l'intelligence artificielle? Ça pourrait se faire en partenariat avec les campus universitaires et les entreprises impliquées dans le milieu. Il me semble que ça contribuerait à renforcer l'idée de Montréal comme capitale mondiale en IA. Je n'ai pour l'instant rien d'autre que cette idée à offrir... mais il me semble qu'elle a du potentiel. Qu'en pensez-vous?
