Why Artificial Intelligence? Why Now?

The largest companies in the world are applying artificial intelligence to optimize operations, maximize talent, and improve service delivery.

These companies understand clearly just how crucial AI is to their future competitiveness.

But for most Canadian workers, employers, and public organizations, AI remains a black box that’s often viewed with suspicion (if at all).

Real World Approach

We help Canadian students, workers, and employers with learning about the opportunities, risks, and information they need in order to get ahead of artificial intelligence and job automation.

Our projects include events, a helpful chatbot, and the Ask AI podcast.

Ask AI operates through the generosity of our volunteers and donations from private companies.
