AI LEADERS

We benefit from the advice and guidance of leaders around the world and across sectors.

The National Program Committee oversees the National Program of Activities, including a series of workshops, training programs, and conferences.

The International Scientific Advisory Committee is responsible for making recommendations on Canada CIFAR AI Chair appointments and providing overall advice and guidance to CIFAR on the Pan-Canadian AI Strategy.
