Montreal invests $10M in research for new technologies

February 17, 2017

The City of Montreal is launching a three-year research program in partnership with the Université de Montréal, Université de Québec à Montréal, and McGill University. The network will study four areas of technology in particular: cybersecurity and computer resilience, massive business and data intelligence, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of things. A group of pan-Canadian researchers, based out of Université de Montréal, will first look at the cybersecurity of Montreal's IT resources. "There has been an increase in computer attacks across the globe, especially over the past year, and the City's sites, both externally and internally, are not immune," says an official document presented to the City.
