Wednesday, July 17, 2019

On June 21, 2019, the University of Waterloo and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) announced a new innovation collaboration on campus. The Collaboration for Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, and Cybersecurity will develop expertise to further research in these areas nationally and internationally. 

“The Faculty of Mathematics has been collaborating with the NRC, especially in computer science research, for more than 10 years,” said Stephen M. Watt, Dean, Faculty of Mathematics. “We look forward to working with the talented researchers at NRC to further develop our collaborations and research in such areas as blockchain, cybersecurity and privacy, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and IoT.”

The announcement includes seed funding for the projects, and the principal investigators from each organization will actively seek external funding.

Currently, three projects with the Faculty of Mathematics are underway, with a fourth coming soon:

The goal is to develop a space on campus where these projects and those with other faculties will be housed to encourage be interactivity at both the project level and between projects.
