Join this Rencontre OFF organized in collaboration with FIAM on how Montreal can become a center of excellence in AI/ML in finance and asset management.

***Event in French***

Context and Vision
Montreal is recognized worldwide for its artificial intelligence (AI) ecosystem, but most research projects and applications are directed towards non-financial sectors. There is therefore a gap - "a missing link" that the FIAM project (Forum d’Investissement Alternatifs de Montréal) aims to fill.

This first webinar in a series of events organized by FIAM with its partners, aims to collect comments and suggestions from portfolio managers, researchers, data scientists, entrepreneurs, students, fintech, fund managers. pension fund, and other stakeholders, on the importance of filling this void. This would contribute to FIAM's vision of making Montreal a Center of Excellence recognized at the Canadian and international level through affiliations / partnerships with organizations, universities and institutes working in the same space.

About FIAM

Part 1: Each panelist presents how data science (AI/ML) fits into their strategy, management process and/or projects - challenges, success and disappointment
Part 2: “Brainstorming” type exchange on the central theme, Is it important to fill this void? What to do? Do Fintechs have a role to play? Do we have the right talent pool? Who should be the key players? Importance of networking with universities etc ...
