Accelerate your business with AI​

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning help companies grow and innovate. 

It’s easy to say but hard to do. 

Understanding and leveraging this data is critical to business growth, differentiation and optimization. Often companies lack the internal resources to take advantage of the data they accumulate. As analytics skills are increasingly important to grow digital literacy, a DeepSense x Mitacs project can help accelerate your adoption of AI. 

Partnership brings our collective resources in funding, advanced computing and facilitating industry-academic collaborations. 

DeepSense experts meet with you to align with your unique business strategy, goals, and needs and explore potential project ideas based on your existing data.

Gain access to researchers to lead a potential data analysis, visualization, machine learning, or artificial intelligence project.

Collaborate with distinguished subject matter experts who can contribute to the success of your AI projects. DeepSense and Mitacs work closely with post-secondary institutions, bringing top-tier academic and industry professionals to help you achieve your goals. Mitacs’s 80-member Business Development team can identify the right expertise to address your business challenges.
