CEO, Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute
Amii is a renowned AI and ML non-profit based in Alberta. For two decades, they’ve strengthened the AI industry through research, industry adoption, and educational programming.
The Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) is an Alberta-based non-profit that supports world-leading research in machine learning and translates scientific advancement into industry adoption.
As one of three national AI Institutes, Amii advances the mission of the Pan-Canadian AI Strategy, led by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR).
AI success starts with people
Phase two of the Pan-Canadian AI Strategy includes an increased focus on translating research into commercial application and growing the capacity of businesses to adopt AI. Amii believes meeting these objectives starts with investing in the growth and development of people. To be successful, businesses adopting AI for the first time need foundational team-wide training right from the start. Then they need access to skilled technical talent to do the work. Amii offers AI education and talent development programming to support both.
Training and courses
AI is a powerful tool that the general public and many business professionals don’t fully understand. Amii addresses this knowledge gap by offering courses taught by world-class scientists and science educators that provide technical and non-technical teams with the common language and understanding of machine learning they need to get started with AI.
Internships and residencies
The demand for AI expertise is high and available talent is low. Through its Internship and Residencies program, Amii helps emerging AI professionals kick-start their careers while supporting companies to source the right technical talent for their machine learning projects.
