AI Grants Awarded to Dawson Researchers
Congratulations to both Catherine Fichten and Joel Trudeau on each being awarded $100,000 towards AI research from Pôle montréalais d’enseignement supérieur en intelligence artificielle (PIA)!
In collaboration with Concordia, McGill’s teaching hospital, Lady Davis Institute, and Cégep Andé-Laurendeau, Catherine and her team will be examining how virtual assistants and AI-based smartphone apps help post-secondary students with disabilities succeed in their studies.
Joel Trudeau’s partnership with Concordia on the “Artificial Intelligence Competency Frameworks: A success pipeline from College to University and beyond” is an inter-institutional (Cegep-University) initiative to establish a community of practice around AI.
