Now in its fifth year, World Summit AI Americas will return to Montréal on 19th and 20th April 2023 and once again bring together global AI leaders from enterprise, big tech, startups, academia, law, government and investment to tackle the most burning AI issues and set the global AI agenda.

The Summit is delighted to welcome two new content partners to Montréal, editorially curating the Deep Dive Tech Talks and the Intelligent Health Track.

The Intelligent Health track has been designed by Intelligent Health, the world’s leading AI in medicine summit series, in partnership with SAIIL, the Surgical Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Laboratory AT Massachusetts General Hospital and will focus on translating technological innovations and scientific insights into partnerships and programs that improve patient outcomes and streamline healthcare to alleviate increasing pressure on facilities and resources. 

According to MarketsandMarkets*, the AI in Healthcare Market is projected to grow from USD 14.6 Billion in 2023 to USD 102.7 Billion by 2028 and the adoption of AI in this industry is showing no signs of slowing down, despite concerns around issues such as data privacy.

The Summit is also delighted to announce a content partnership with Mila - Québec Artificial Intelligence Institute, the world’s largest deep learning research institute. Mila is a community of more than 1,000 researchers specializing in machine learning and dedicated to scientific excellence and innovation and they will be bringing some of their top talent to discuss ground-breaking innovations in AI and tech. Their mission? To be a global pole for scientific advances that inspires innovation and the development of AI for the benefit of all.

Speakers include Yoshua Bengio, Canada CIFAR AI Chair; Full Professor, Samsung AI; Professor, Université de Montréal; Scientific Director, Mila & IVADO, Athina Kanioura, Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, PepsiCo, Dr Luc Julia, Chief Scientific Officer, Renault Group, Carol Reiley, CEO and Mother of Robots, Ozanan Meireles, Surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital; Director MGH Surgical Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Laboratory (SAIIL); Assistant Professor of Surgery, Harvard Medical School, Philippe Rambach, Senior Vice President, Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer, Schneider Electric, and many more. 

The summit features 6 tracks of content including AI in Enterprise focusing on real-life AI in action stories from globally-recognised corporates leading the way with innovation adoption; Deep-Dive Tech Talks covering breakthroughs in generative AI and large language models neural networks, evolutionary computation, robotics, NLP, ML; Innovation Insights showcasing the most disruptive AI tech companies of tomorrow, who are innovating at pace and creating entirely new models for AI application; and our super popular interactive Workshops.

Yoshua Bengio says: “AI, which has been part of our daily lives for about ten years, is a technology that will be the basis of important developments for researchers, businesses and citizens in the years to come. Areas such as health, environment and education will see great advances thanks to AI. Companies, organizations and governments therefore have a responsibility to listen, invest and provide guidance around this technology and we can be proud to have here in Quebec and in Canada one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the world in this matter”. 

Montréal is home to a thriving artificial intelligence ecosystem with world-renowned AI companies, research labs, academic programs and research institutes such as the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA) and the Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute (IVADO), which attract top talent from around the world. 

The city also has famous researchers in deep learning, automatic speech recognition, computer vision, natural language processing and reinforcement learning. Major companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Facebook have opened AI research labs in the city.

The Canadian and Quebec governments, as well as international corporations, are playing a crucial role in both funding Montreal research organizations and in the recruitment and retention of talent in Canada. There is no question that global AI leadership is a national priority. 

With 1,032 AI and machine learning companies and some of the world’s brightest minds in the field, global companies are choosing to locate in AI hubs across the country to get access to the deepest and highest quality pool of AI talent. Businesses investing in Canada’s AI ecosystems also benefit from strong government support, low business costs, and access to world-class AI clusters.

Sarah Porter, CEO and Founder of InspiredMinds and World Summit AI says: “Challenging the status quo using emerging tech is our aim this year. It is the moment where we are seeing the major impact that AI can bring to humanity. Our global community of game changers will unite in the epicentre of such innovation - Montréal!”.
