AI4Society is a new Signature Research Area at the University of Alberta which Digital Synergies is working closely with. From the Signature Areas page on the University of Alberta website, "The University of Alberta has gained institutional recognition and prominence as a lead player in Canada’s national AI strategy; Alberta’s knowledge-based ecosystem is flourishing; and AI-related activities are being undertaken across campus by faculty in science, engineering, arts and humanities. The AI4Society Signature Area will provide continuing institutional leadership in this exciting area of research and scholarship, coordinating and designing innovative training programs and representing the institution in new initiatives with public, private, and international partners."
