CUE is excited to host Discovery Lab, an open forum for academics, start-ups and SMEs to build connections and advance their technologies for commercialization. To start the day off, we will have two CUE representatives pitching ideas to a panel of legal, business, marketing, financial and investment experts:

  • Mike Wade, Director of CA2I, will pitch the CT scanning project that was shared on the news.
  • Dr. Yvonne Wong, Faculty of Arts sessional instructor and entrepreneur, will pitch her project on developing a neuro-feedback based app for treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) in children.  This was also featured in a news piece on CBC Radioactive!
Rod Kurtz, CBC Radioactive, interviews Ed Boraas and Mike Wade of CUE's Centre for Applied Artificial Intelligence, President Tim Loreman, and Yvonne Wong (sessional instructor at CUE and entrepreneur) and Isha Katyal (manager of Centre for Innovation and Applied Research).

Additionally, there will be a talk by Matt Parker from AltaML and group discussion on innovation over lunch. The event will conclude with a reception where attendees will have the opportunity to network with experts in AI and innovation.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
