U of T, LG establish artificial intelligence partnership

August 2, 2018

The University of Toronto and LG Electronics Inc have established a five-year, multimillion-dollar research partnership that will also see an artificial intelligence lab built on U of T’s campus. Students, professors and post-doctoral fellows “will get to see that global side of how you build product and how you get to global markets,” said U of T Vice-President of Research and Innovation Vivek Goel. The lab will be an extension of LG’s global AI research-and-development facilities, and Goel added that the lab will give “our faculty an opportunity to find collaborations or partnerships in disciplines or areas that we may not have the capacity for.” Globe and Mail (Subscription Required)
