With the goal of preparing our students for the pivotal role that artificial intelligence (AI) will play in both their personal and professional lives, Dawson College has instituted a multidisciplinary AI-themed community of practice consisting of faculty members who are committed to developing pedagogical material on AI-related themes and vulgarizing new AI developments to the larger Dawson community.
Eight teachers, representing eight different academic disciplines, have been selected to be part of the second cohort of fellows of this community of practice. These new fellows, who will start their work in the Fall, will share their most easily transferable creations on the DawsonAI website. They will also lead at least two workshops (or give at least two conferences) open to the larger Dawson community during the academic year 2020-2021.
We are pleased to announce that the 2020 AI fellows are:
Vanessa Gordon (Political Science)
Daniel Pomerantz (Computer Science)
Cheryl Simon (Cinema and Communications)
Garry Ka Lok Chu (Mathematics)
Gregory Polakoff (Humanities)
Jennifer Sigouin (Sociology)
Charles Le Guen (3D Animation and Computer Generated Imagery)
Ahmad Banki (Economics)
