Congratulations to AI Institute members Laura Middleton (AHS), Edith Law (Math), Anindya Sen (Arts), Plinio Morita (AHS), and Omar Ramahi (Engineering) on being awarded research grants from a fund established by the University of Waterloo and the University of Bordeaux to support collaborative projects between the two campuses. Several of the collaborative projects arose out of a workshop on AI and Health held at the University of Bordeaux in April of this year that was co-organized by Waterloo AI Institute and the University of Bordeaux.
Combining the University's world-renowned research and BlackBerry's proven ability in delivering impactful products and services, the two organizations will work together to develop a plan for continuous joint innovation, with the goal of creating a joint lab that will fast track the development of research and technology into products that can ultimately be taken to market.
The regional newspaper "The Record" is publishing a multi-part series tackling research in AI done in the Waterloo Region, and specifically at UW and research labs affiliated with its AI Institute. The articles highlight recent exciting research done by faculty members and research scientists in various fields of applied and theoretical development of AI.
