Jumio’s AI Labs will be dedicated to developing deep learning models and best practices to revolutionize online identity verification and fraud detection. The choice of Montreal as the location of Jumio’s AI Labs was deliberate. In recent years, Montreal has emerged as a major technology hub for AI. A major reason has been the work of Yoshua Bengio, a professor and researcher at the University of Montreal, a co-founder of Element AI (a company dedicated to advancing cutting-edge AI research), and widely considered one of the fathers of deep learning. This combined with a low cost of living and several large Montreal-based universities and academic institutions, has led to a convergence of AI talent and research support in the city.
