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.

AI Research and Development Mentorship Spring/Summer Program Timeline

The Spring/Summer Program is 8 weeks in duration during May, June, and July and is part-time and designed to be accessible for students and those who are working, with sessions on Saturdays. Starting on May 25th, this program provides the opportunity to work with exceptional mentors, acquire real world experience and skills in AI, and to push the boundaries of AI in research and development projects. This program is open to selected participants from the ConcordAI Hackathon, who need not fill out this application. We are opening up a small number of spots for those who were unable to participate in the hackathon to participate in the program.

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.
