From Amazon's Alexa to autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming part of everyone's lives in some form or another.
Waterloo Engineering researchers are leading the way by both shaping and directing world-changing AI technology. Instead of relying on cloud computing power that can result in service, security and data privacy concerns, our experts are developing Operational AI.
Operational AI is lightweight and compact with highly effective intelligence that relies on minimal computing power and energy requirements. Some of the areas our researchers are developing innovative Operational AI technology include medical diagnostics, self-driving vehicles, speech recognition and living architecture.
Waterloo Engineering offers more high-level courses in AI than any other Canadian university and most in the U.S. And our students are in demand. Google alone hires dozens of our co-op students each term to work in their AI/deep learning teams.
