The University of Alberta has received a $1.25M donation from Scotiabank to fund the Artificial Intelligence Research Initiative. Operating within the school’s department of computer science, the initiative aims to gain further knowledge about, and build practical tools and predictive models for fraud detection and speech to text analytics. “This donation not only supports our students but also provides important training for postdoctoral fellows, increasing our research capacity in AI and positioning our leaders of tomorrow to address global challenges and societal needs,” said UAlberta Dean of the Faculty of Science Matina Kalcounis-Ruepell.
