DIGITAL has launched a new stream within their established Horizon AI program.
Horizon AI is DIGITAL’s specialized, national program focused on capturing economic potential from Applied AI.
The Global Advantage Stream is geared towards championing Canada’s position in the evolving AI landscape, particularly focusing on the emerging potential of Digital Service Agents and the development of AI as infrastructure or utility spanning various industries.
By building a commercially focused AI ecosystem through Technology Commercialization, Global Advantage and Talent streams, DIGITAL is helping Canadian organizations create a global competitive advantage that enables market leadership and accelerated revenue growth.
DIGITAL was first created to address data challenges and facilitate digital transformation for businesses. Now, the latest advancements in technology bring the organization full circle as AI increasingly becomes a crucial part of harnessing data and optimizing processes.
With co-investments totalling $5 million from the commercial pillar of the Government of Canada’s Pan-Canadian AI Strategy into this new stream, they’re setting the stage for potentially groundbreaking AI initiatives, including partnerships that go to DIGITAL’s roots of championing and collaborating with startups, scaleups and global partners.
These investments will help Canadian tech companies leverage their leadership in high-potential, emerging market opportunities by building, demonstrating and launching AI-enabled products, services and platforms.
