Two videos about the new Vector Institute

Today I share two short videos about the recently launched institute The Vector Institute. This will be an Artificial Intelligence (AI) focused institution based in Toronto, Canada, and it will be a promising new focus point for the AI and deep learning communities around the world. As it is mentioned in the videos one of the outcomes of initiatives such as these is the motivation to do outstanding research & developement within a top talented pool of motivated researchers, individuals and companies, while retaining those with demonstrable more talent or capacity. The synergies that might spring up from the Vector Institute might as well be of deep economic or corporate interest. We will keep track of further developments, surely:

The first video is from the company Integrate.ai‘s YouTube channel:

The second video features the part of this gathering where the audit and consultancy business firm Accenture showed their support for this new institute – The Vector Institute. In this very short video the speakers weren’t from Accenture though, but two Canadian politicians and the Chief Scientific Advisor of Vector Institute, the now also familiar feature to this blog Dr. Geoffrey Hinton:
