The Conference

We are a 400+ guest conference attracting top talent from across Canada. Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the event will now take place online on April 2 & 3, 2022.
CUCAI 2021 had also been transitioned to a fully online format, with various esteemed speakers and panelists, 400+ attendees, and sponsors including the National Bank of Canada, Google, Telus and the Vector Institute. Highlights from the conference include the industry showcase, design team showcase, incubator pitch competition and coffee chats with industry.
CUCAI 2022 aims to continue expanding our national reach by inviting more delegates from universities across Canada through our undergraduate AI group collaboration program. We wish to allow for more guests altogether, and with our continued online format, reach students and indrutry from coast to coast. We are attaining more esteemed sponsors and speakers than ever before. Major additions to CUCAI 2022 are the Undergraduate AI Group Showcase, the previously mentioned Student AI Group Collaboration Program and improving our bursary program to increase CUCAI’s accessibility.
Our community is one where we actively challenge the status quo around what undergraduate students are capable of achieving in the field of artificial intelligence. We are makers, innovators and disruptors.

Our Mission

Designed to connect undergraduate students with industry leaders, the Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Artificial Intelligence provides a platform for companies to develop corporate brand recognition with undergraduate AI talent, facilitate learning about AI, and showcase the diverse opportunities available for students in this field.
