Waterloo makes the cut! The Americas' most innovative universities for AI and robotics

Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Across North and South America, automation is transforming the nature of work and is set to replace around a third of roles. Yet at the same time, AI is generating new opportunities and job prospects.

To ensure long-term economic success, many experts believe nurturing the AI talent pipeline will be essential.

The University of Waterloo has recently launched a new AI research hub. The Waterloo AI Institute will bring together researchers and businesses to advance AI research and development. Focus areas include healthcare, urban planning, autonomous systems and human-machine interaction.

Industry collaboration has long been one of the major strengths of the University of Waterloo and we continue in that tradition through the institute’s many planned activities. We want to make sure that the efforts and work being done by our professors, researchers and students shine to the outside world and benefit society.
