2019 AI Conference

 
 

In collaboration with Hugo Larochelle from Google Brain, TechAide will be hosting a 2nd edition of its 1-day research conference on artificial intelligence on April 26th. The event will bring together world-renowned researchers in the field.

In addition to being exposed to the most recent research in AI, attendees will be contributing to a great cause. Indeed, all proceeds of the conference will go towards the TechAide initiative to give back to Centraide of Greater Montreal, in support of their fight against poverty and social exclusion.

Attendees are encouraged to give generously. No matter the amount, every donation counts. To double our impact, Hugo Larochelle has offered to match all donations, up to $25,000!
