This session will be only accessible live in the Palais des Congrès et des Festivals de Cannes.

With over a thousand AI and machine learning companies and some of the world’s brightest minds in the field, Canada continues to attract global talent and capital. As a result, global companies are choosing to locate in AI hubs across the country to get access to the deepest and highest quality pool of AI talent. Businesses investing in Canada’s AI ecosystems also benefit from strong government support, low business costs, and access to world-class AI clusters. Come and listen why for key members of our ecosystem, and from two of our startups sharing their journey.
