The AI Pathways Partnership (AIPP), a consortium comprised of Norquest College, Athabasca University, Concordia University of Edmonton, and Bow Valley Collage, will be offering Alberta students opportunities to gain training in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) through a collaboration with Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute. AIPP, which is funded through Western Economic Diversification Canada, will help learners at the high school, postsecondary, or graduate levels connect with career-focused education. Programs will include technical, business, and professional interpersonal skills. “This collaboration between Western Economic Diversification Canada and the AI Pathways Partnership will lead to dynamic new learning opportunities for students entering this field, while also creating a pipeline of highly qualified personnel to further bolster this emerging high-tech sector,” said Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada.
