Canadian (A.I.) Initiative: New AI Directory (briefing note)

Ottawa & Toronto, ONIT World Canada, CATAAlliance & SalesChoice Inc. have partnered to launch the Canadian Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Initiative with a New A.I. Directory designed to help advance Canada’s global A.I. leadership.

The A.I. Directory provides stakeholders with an opportunity to profile their expertise, find influencers, discover partnership opportunities, share research, and gain insights into new business models.

More than 200 organizations are already profiled and indexed in the A.I. Directory.

According to recent research the annual global revenue for artificial intelligence products and services will grow from $643.7 million in 2016 to $36.8 billion by 2025, a 57-fold increase over that time period.

“ AI is one of the fastest growing segments of any size in the IT sector, ” said IT World CEO, Fawn Annan, adding, “ New business models are evolving at the speed of light across a broad spectrum of industries. One of our roles is to help companies embrace A.I. driven disruptive technologies to continue to advance out IT community skills and expertise.”

CATA CEO, John Reid said, “ Our role in the Canadian (I.A.) Initiative is to serve as the advocacy champion.  Working with the community, we will cultivate Canada’s considerable strengths and eliminate every barrier to competitiveness to achieve Canada’s number one ranking as a Competitive Innovation Nation. A.I. disruptive technology leadership is front and centre to our mission.”
