What it is
Within the Office of Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Services, the AI Hub opened 18 months ago. “It offers industry partners access to technical expertise, state-of-the-art facilities and platforms and student talent, so that companies can uncover business insights while providing intelligent and autonomous solutions that increase their productivity and growth,” says Hirji.
How it helps
There are myriad projects in cyber security, fintech, insurance and contact centre services. “We recently completed projects with Durham Region, Lakeridge Health and Precisepark Link. We were also selected as the only college at the prestigious CISO forum Canada,” Hirji says.
