Industry Services

Mila offers tailor-made services to businesses and private and public organizations to help them maximize the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) in their activities.

The separation between business applications and academic AI research can sometimes make it difficult for organizations to identify and adopt the right technologies to tackle specific problems. 

To bridge this gap, Mila’s applied machine learning research team works with organizations on high-impact and challenging machine learning projects. The team's unique collaborative approach aims at designing and implementing cutting-edge solutions that benefit organizations by enriching their machine learning capabilities. Whether your project requires natural language processing, computer vision, or other forms of expertise, our team's diverse skill set can help you achieve your goals.  

We offer services with flexible options for industrial and intellectual property concerns and exciting funding opportunities.

Applied Research Projects

From the earliest stages of AI projects, our specialists aim to establish proofs of concept to help organizations capture the full value of machine learning. Our teams strive to fully understand the problem being solved and how a machine learning model will be used in production. The success of our approach is due in large part to a solid understanding of the datasets we are entrusted with and rigorous experimental protocols set up according to project objectives.
