About

The Vector Institute will propel Canada to the forefront of the global shift to artificial intelligence (“AI”) by promoting and maintaining Canadian excellence in deep learning and machine learning more broadly, and by actively seeking ways to enable and sustain AI-based economic growth in Canada.

The Vector Institute is an independent, non-profit research institution dedicated to the transformative field of artificial intelligence, excelling in deep learning and machine learning – an area of scientific, academic, and commercial endeavour that will shape our world over the next generation.

Collaborating with Ontario’s academic institutions, other institutes across Canada and companies in every sector of the economy, we will conduct research and drive the adoption and commercialization of AI technologies across Canada. Our goals are to: 1) be a world-leading centre for AI research; 2) graduate the most machine-learning PhDs and masters students in deep learning and machine learning globally; and 3) become the engine for an AI super cluster that drives the economy of Toronto, Ontario and Canada.
