Topic: IVADO: shifting paradigms for a robust, reasoning and responsible AI and its adoption

Abstract: Created in 2016 with a grant of approximately CAD100m,  IVADO is one of Canada’s premier institutes in artificial intelligence. It brings together some 2000 researchers, many distinguished centers and more than 150 organizational partners. Supported by a group of universities led by the Université de Montréal, it is truly multisectoral. I will give an overview of its accomplishments and impacts and of its new strategic plan aimed at generating paradigm shifts in AI and its adoption.
