TELUS and Amii are coming together for a five-year collaboration to study and deliver artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithms and techniques to manage increasingly complex next-generation networks.
Through this collaboration, Amii and TELUS will model various networking and service layers supporting Canada’s critical network infrastructure to better understand their interactions, helping identify potential risks. Together, Amii’s world-leading researchers and TELUS’ national network data, insights, and expertise will help uncover new, cutting-edge applications for artificial intelligence and machine learning to better manage today's complex networks, delivering better outcomes and more resilient networks for Canadians.
"Working with TELUS is an incredible opportunity to work with a partner focused on improving the communities where they live, work and serve, helping further unlock AI applications focused on positive human outcomes."
Amii CEO Cam Linke said: "Amii is proud to partner with TELUS to leverage our more than 20 years of experience at the leading edge of AI and machine learning (ML) to protect and improve critical network infrastructure for Canadians."
"As one of the nation's three AI institutes, we translate scientific breakthroughs into tangible paths to commercialization for industry, while also advancing the field of research and training the next generation of the AI workforce. Working with TELUS is an incredible opportunity to work with a partner focused on improving the communities where they live, work and serve, helping further unlock AI applications focused on positive human outcomes," Linke added.
TELUS CTO Ibrahim Gedeon commented: "Our partnership with Amii marks an exciting new chapter for Canadian-created intellectual property in the critical area of network resiliency. These solutions are needed here and around the world with connectivity and internet services vital to a digital society. TELUS is proud to be at the forefront of applied machine learning research and development with some of the best minds in the field at Amii."
