Welcome to Waterloo.ai

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change our lives – transforming how we work, how we travel, how we treat disease, how we communicate, and how we learn.

Waterloo has a vital role to play. Our researchers are developing intelligent systems that can detect cancer and heart disease, understand language and emotion, and navigate roadways and factory floors better than ever before. But we’re just getting started. Our constant focus on key technologies and on the foundational breakthroughs to make them a reality will accelerate AI innovation that benefits everyone, everywhere.

Waterloo’s track record of partnership with industry will allow us to deliver effective AI innovation for hundreds and thousands of businesses across Canada – a truly inclusive AI revolution. Canadian start-ups, Small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and corporations will be able to pioneer new technologies in medical care, assistive devices, environmental monitoring, adaptive robotics, and autonomous driving.

Building on this expertise and experience, Waterloo is producing end-to-end AI solutions of immediate benefit to all Canadians. In years to come, we expect this research investment to yield profound dividends for the economic prosperity, wellbeing and quality of life of people all around the world.
