Just like the inaugural edition, this second edition of AI on a Social Mission is a major conference on social impact of AI in Montreal. Start ups and NPOs will explain how they use artificial intelligence for their social mission. They will also share with us their experience as a start up or non-profit with a social mission and their dreams for AI and social good.

This is your voice on a fair and sustainable implementation of AI.

Presentations and panels are available on our YouTube channel
