Montréal-based Québec Artificial Intelligence Institute (Mila) and the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (la Caisse) have signed a strategic partnership to foster the creation and growth of businesses in artificial intelligence (AI).
For this purpose, a brand-new Espace CDPQ | Axe IA will be build in Mila’s complex to house AI startups. Nine Montréal-based companies have already been selected following a first selection process. They come from innovative and promising fields, including biopharmaceuticals, aerospace, neuroscience, advanced manufacturing and smart mobility.
One of Montréal’s driving attractiveness factor is collaboration between actors. And this partnership, with a goal to strengthen the collaboration culture between the academic and business communities, is a good example.
