The first-ever Global Studies program geared exclusively for our Academy for Technology and Computer Science will travel north to Montreal in April 2024 to experience the World AI Summit. Montreal is a virtual tech playground that will provide us ample opportunity to immerse ourselves in cutting edge research at some of the top CS universities in the world, interact with corporations and learn about innovative projects in the tech space, while exploring one of the most international and innovative cities in the world.
Montréal’s place at the forefront of artificial intelligence research and development is easy to spot across the city, which is home to internationally renowned think tanks and trendsetting corporations involved in ground-breaking innovation. The Canadian government chose Montréal as headquarters for SCALE AI, Canada’s AI supply chain supercluster. Companies such as Google, IBM and DeepMind all have regional offices in the city. In short, Montréal is an AI powerhouse.
An exclusive gathering of the major global influencers in AI across business, science and tech for two full days of mind-boggling innovation, heated discussions on AI policy, ethics and regulation, applied solutions for enterprise, hands-on workshops and the development of plans for advancing the application of AI for Good in the coming year.
The world’s leading AI summit for the Americas brings together the global AI ecosystem, showcasing the world’s brightest AI brains with innovative, cutting-edge, topical content, tackling the most burning AI issues right now. Learn more here.
A Leader in CS Higher Education
Visit both McGill University's School of Computer Science and the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science at Concordia University. Attend a special presentation by the computer science departments (more info coming soon!), meet with admissions, and take a campus tour of these two world-class international universities.
Soak up the European feel of this cosmopolitan Canadian city! Walk the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, visit Mount Royal Park, explore food markets, and have some fun in the Old Port. You'll leave with a thorough feel of what it would be like to live in one of North America's most unique cities.
We will be staying at the Springhill Suites by Marriott Old Montreal, where students will stay in suites of three, each student having their own bed.
Breakfast will be at your leisure in our hotel each morning, lunch (not included) will be on the run, and dinners will be at some of Montreal's most exciting restaurants!
We will be using a charter bus to travel from BCA to Montreal and back, but will be on foot or taking the Metro during our time in the city. There will be extensive walking, as that is the best way to see the city!
