On April 9th was held the first Rendez-Vous in artificial intelligence (IA) of Quebec, an invitation from the Institute for Information Technologies and Societies (IITS), the Université Ulaval Big Data Research Center (BDRC_UL), AIworx and Québec International. Organized as part of the third Digital Week in Quebec City, this event brought together more than 500 people who were able to discover a variety of themes on AI and take the pulse of research and innovation conducted in Quebec City and Levis. The day's progress allowed members of the UMRsu team present to discuss and exchange with several participants from both industry and research field. In addition, an exhibition and a poster session brought the opportunity to learn more about the state-of-the-art initiatives and works carried out in the Quebec City area. These posters included student projects that worked in collaboration with the UMRsu. The posters also demonstrated, dynamically and attractively, the diversity of AI applications. An event that was filled with amazing encounters, stimulating exchanges and exciting discussions.
