Canadian AI Industry Track
Canadian AI 2021 invites industry researchers, developers, entrepreneurs and emerging startups to take part in the upcoming Industry Track of the 34th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Vancouver, British Columbia.
AI has seen tremendous growth in the past decade driven by the exponential growth of computational power and data. At the same time, AI as a technology has been more accessible than ever with the proliferation of open source libraries, cloud computing, and the tremendous number of online resources for learning. Despite such a fertile environment for AI to flourish, there are still significant challenges of applying AI to solve real-world problems. From data issues to corner cases to algorithmic limitations, shipping industrial AI systems is anything but simple. The aim of the industry track is to connect academic researchers, graduate students, and industry practitioners to better understand the challenges of taking AI from the lab to production.
The theme of this year’s industry track will be AI: From Theory to Practice, focusing on the challenges of applying AI to real-world problems. Industry contributors are invited to submit a proposal for a 20 minute presentation (with an additional 5 minutes of Q&A) on a topic related to using AI to solve a real-world industrial problem. Accepted presenters will also be invited to participate in a moderated panel discussion on the challenges of applying AI in practice.
Submission deadline: 26 February, 2021 extended to 8 March 2021
Author notification: 6 April 2021
Conference: 25 May to 28 May 2021
The proposal must include the following:
- Talk title
- Name of the presenter(s), title(s) and company
- Bio of the presenter(s) (max. 100 words per presenter) for the website
- Summary of talk (max. 100 words) for the website
- Detailed description of the talk (max. 500 words) for review
Preference will be given to talks that showcase this year’s theme: AI: From Theory to Practice. Be sure to include details about the industry, problem, and challenges you have faced when deploying AI, in addition to the solutions.
