Mila Techaide 2024

AI Conference Benefiting Centraide of Greater Montreal

In collaboration with Mila, Techaide will be hosting another edition of its 1-day research conference on artificial intelligence on April 12th 2024. The event will bring together numerous researchers, professors from Mila, an elite group of AI researchers presenting their current projects and sharing their field expertise.

In addition to being exposed to the most recent research in AI, attendees will be contributing to a great cause. Indeed, all proceeds of the conference will go towards the Techaide initiative to give back to Centraide of Greater Montreal, in support of their fight against poverty and social exclusion.

Attendees are encouraged to give generously. No matter the amount, every donation counts. To increase our impact, Hugo Larochelle has offered to match the first $25,000 of donations, while Ian Goodfellow and Yann N. Dauphin will each match the next $25,000!
