The huge potential of artificial intelligence got much of the attention Friday as a University of Waterloo researcher joined other academics and business leaders for a wide-ranging panel discussion on growing the Waterloo-Toronto technology corridor into a global supercluster.
Alex Wong, a professor of systems design engineering who specializes in AI, was one of seven panelists at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto who explored why the idea should be aggressively pursued and how to make it a reality.
The 2016 recipients of the Waterloo Engineering Faculty and Staff awards for outstanding contributions to education and research were celebrated by Engineering Dean Pearl Sullivan and colleagues at a dinner held January 25.
The Outstanding Staff Performance Award administrative categorywinner is Emily Stafford of the School of Architecture. She was recognized for her unwavering commitment to its graduate program and for her dedication to the graduate student experience.
