There are very few places in the world like Montreal and McGill which have such a concentration of talent in the field of AI/ML. MAIS primarily serves to build a community with a shared passion for the field, spreading knowledge and resources to help aid people trying to enter the AI ecosystem. Our podcast aims to promote the research and share the experiences of people making remarkable contributions to the development of AI across disciplines, and to allow others to use that information to break into the field while being more aware of the challenges and opportunities. We hope to foster an accessible, holistic resource to understand how AI is evolving and continuously changing the world around us.
