Artificial intelligence

A pioneer in artificial intelligence

Yoshua Bengio is a pioneer of deep learning, a discipline that has revolutionized artificial intelligence. Mila, the institute he founded, is the world's most renowned university research centre in AI. Deeply aware of the ethical issues of research in his field, Dr. Bengio is an advocate for socially responsible development of artificial intelligence.


Staying the course for research

UdeM researchers are advancing research in artificial intelligence. They are helping put Montreal on the international map for AI.
