March 8, 2019

Durham College and NEXT Canada have jointly launched the NextED AI Business Strategy & Application Course. A Durham release states that the eight-week course focuses on the development of a disruptive AI technology and hands-on applications of AI to a specific business problem. The program will also include a mentorship component. “DC’s AI Hub mentors will bring expertise in really diverse sectors, including customer service, health, real estate, shipping and logistics, agriculture, digital media, finance and education,” said Debbie McKee Demczyk, Dean of the college’s Office of Research Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. “Delivering these mentorship services as part of the NextED course capstone project is an exciting opportunity to further demonstrate and strengthen DC’s leadership in the Canadian AI ecosystem.” Durham (ON)
