An artificial intelligence project to apply it in business strategies | Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean – Neomedia

The COlab research center will carry out an artificial intelligence (AI) project to help players in the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem to better understand its influence and application in business strategies.

As part of the NovaScience program, Support for training initiatives in artificial intelligence (AI), the Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI) is granting financial assistance for the realization of this project.

In partnership with the Alma – Lac-Saint-Jean-Est Innovation and Development Corporation (CIDAL), the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (UQAC), Businesses and Communities Alma College, and the Center for Applied Artificial Intelligence JACOBB, COlab wishes to develop and offer a set of AI awareness activities, organized in the form of a flexible and customizable experiential course.

CIDAL Director General Martin Belzile welcomes this initiative, which he says will prove as beneficial for business support organizations as it is for entrepreneurs themselves.

“CIDAL is very enthusiastic to participate in the Avenue IA project, which fits perfectly into its strategy of supporting local businesses in their digital transformation and the integration of technologies related to industry 4.0. Through various training and awareness activities, the CIDAL intends to increase its expertise in the field of artificial intelligence in order to be even better equipped to support entrepreneurs in the MRC of Lac-Saint-Jean. – Is,” he commented.

Discovery trails

The objective of the project is to broaden the horizon of possibilities among companies and economic advisors so that they can better understand the potential and concrete applications of AI in different fields.

COlab will use a learning-by-action system composed of workshops (reflection, ideation, awareness). This discovery trail called “Avenue IA” has two parts:

• A common core allowing participants to familiarize themselves, through content accessible online or in person, with the various AI technologies and their fields of application.

• Workshops to experience some of the AI ​​technologies through hands-on labs.

Regional Conference

Also, a regional conference will be organized where companies in the region will have access to a panel of AI experts.

Aurélie Pinceloup, Director of Strategy, Experience and Technologies at COlab, is enthusiastic about this new project.

“Artificial intelligence is often difficult to design, SMEs think that it is only applicable to very large companies. But this is no longer the case, today very concrete applications are accessible. In this new context, it seemed essential to us to propose activities to allow entrepreneurs and economic advisers to better understand the issues and to stimulate regional innovation in connection with AI. »
