October 11, 2018 – Montreal has been selected to host a major artificial intelligence summit for at least three years.

The London-based firm behind World Summit AI says the event between 2019 to 2021 follows the second edition currently taking place in Amsterdam.

Quebec’s largest city has become a global hub for research and excellence in AI, with participation from McGill University and the University of Montreal, where AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio works.

The city has attracted major digital players including Google, Microsoft, IBM, Samsung, Thales and Facebook, all of which have set up AI research labs.
