In early 2017, the Science and Innovation Network (SIN) Canada teamed up with Innovate UK on various Artificial Intelligence-related (AI) activities in Toronto, Montreal and the UK.

The SIN Canada team provided guidance on Canada and the UK’s AI sector including insight into key AI hubs across the countries and fostering UK/Canada R&D connections, as well as exploring commercial opportunities.

Through these SIN-led activities, firms from both nations were able to develop and increase their knowledge and understanding of both AI sector resulting in Canada’s most successful AI start-up, Element AI, officially announcing its UK office on Monday 22nd January.
