AI4Good Lab

Empowering gender-diverse groups to succeed in AI.

The AI4Good Lab is a seven-week program designed to give women, trans women and non-binary individuals the skills they need to build their own machine learning (ML) projects. Through mentorship and curiosity-driven learning, the Lab prepares participants for professional careers in artificial intelligence (AI).

Created to help open doors for those who have been historically underrepresented within the AI field, the Lab was founded in 2017 by Dr. Doina Precup — an Associate Professor at McGill University, Core Academic Member at Mila, Research Team Lead at Deepmind, and Canada CIFAR AI Chair — and by Angelique Mannella, Chief of Staff at AWS Industries. The program is offered each summer in Montréal, Toronto and Edmonton. 

This innovative initiative is aimed at building a more inclusive and diverse tech culture in Canada, while also inspiring future generations of leaders to use AI as a tool for social good.

The call for applications will be held from January 10 to January 31, 2023.

The next event will be held from May 1 to June 20, 2023.
