An online magazine has recognized the University of Waterloo as one of the five most innovative universities in North America and South America in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
A research group at Waterloo Engineering is the first Canadian academic member of a global organization dedicated to studying and formulating best practices on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
Engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a new system that could significantly speed up the discovery of new drugs and reduce the need for costly and time-consuming laboratory tests.
The new technology, called Pattern to Knowledge (P2K), can predict the binding of biosequences in seconds and potentially reduce bottlenecks in drug research.
Waterloo Engineering is continuing its relationship with Amazon through the Alexa Fellowship, a growing program to support research, education and entrepreneurship around conversational artificial intelligence (AI).
Waterloo was one of just four universities – along with Carnegie Melon University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Southern California - to participate in the program when it launched last year.
Progress on new artificial intelligence (AI) technology could make monitoring at water treatment plants cheaper and easier and help safeguard public health.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed AI software capable of identifying and quantifying different kinds of cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, a threat to shut down water systems when it suddenly proliferates.
