The University of Toronto has received a $5M donation from BMO Financial Group to create a center that will explore the creative potential of AI and other technologies. The BMO Lab for Creative Research in the Arts, Performance, Emerging Technologies, and AI will employ the latest technological developments to create new forms of human expression and engage the public in conversations about the role of technology in society. “Not only will this transformative lab re-imagine teaching and learning, and attract stellar faculty and students to U of T from around the world, it will prepare students for the future of work – with deep knowledge, communications skills, and fluency in AI and teamwork,” says U of T Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science Melanie Woodin.
