Canada’s AI leadership strengthened through new and renewed Canada CIFAR AI Chairs under the Pan-Canadian AI Strategy

Catherine Régis has been appointed a Canada CIFAR AI Chair!

“Canada’s AI ecosystem has grown tremendously since the launch of the Pan-Canadian AI Strategy six years ago. Central to the strategy has been the recruitment and retention of excellent researchers at Canada’s three National AI Institutes, who in turn attract next-generation talent as well as commercial investments in this globally in-demand field. We’re excited about the contributions of these new and renewed Chairs, who will continue to advance Canada’s global leadership in AI, a technology that when used responsibly holds terrific potential to address some of humanity’s greatest challenges.”
– Elissa Strome, Executive Director, Pan-Canadian AI Strategy at CIFAR
