Fuelling Our Ecosystem With Undiscovered AI Talent

 

AI R&D Mentorship Program

 

ConcordAI aims to help address Montréal’s AI training and talent gap by identifying remarkably talented individuals who are highly motivated to work in the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning. ConcordAI AI Research and Development Mentorship Program offers the chance to learn and to acquire skills and experience in AI through creation supported by mentorship. The cohort will be given the opportunity and support to provide real value to startups, and to push the boundaries of AI in research and development and open innovation projects.

The Spring Program is 8 weeks in duration during May and June and is part-time and designed to be accessible for students and those who are working, with sessions on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays. Selected ConcordAI Hackathon participants will be invited to interview for ConcordAI AI Research and Development Mentorship Spring Program.

AI Research and Development Mentorship Spring Program Timeline

Talent, Diversity, and Collaboration

In addition to providing experiential learning, mentorship, and skills for participants, as well as high levels of value in experimental and practical projects for mandators, we aim to solve 3 problems:

There is not enough AI talent, not enough diversity, and forming great teams quickly is difficult. We believe we will begin to show that all three can be solved simultaneously.
