< MTL > connect: Digital Week in Montreal


This week marks <MTL> connect: Digital Week in Montreal, 5 days of presentations, networking and discussion about digital transformation in multiple industry verticals. Organized by Printemps Numérique, these day-long sessions are being held all over town, with each day focussing on a different theme. Each session contains dozens of speakers from all over the world.

Quebec’s Minister for Governmental Digital Transformation, Eric Caire, was on hand at the AI event on Tuesday to show the support of the province’s government. Moreover, he said that he expects this type of event to become more frequent, given that Montreal is home to a world class pool of expertise in artificial intelligence, which now acts as an important economic engine for both the city and the province as a whole. The Minister insisted that in terms of digital, a change of culture is needed within the government. He told the crowd that more internal expertise is required, while speaking about the creation of a Quebec digital center of excellence adding “we must adapt our legislative framework, which is archaic”. For those of you interested in attending, tickets can be purchased here. Don’t have the budget? Not to worry! The activities will be opened up to the general public this weekend (June 1 & 2).

    Do you have a spam issue on this website; I
    also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have created some nice procedures and we are looking to trade strategies with other folks, why
    not shoot me an email if interested.

    Having read this I thought it was very informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together.

    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

    Heya exceptional blog! Does running a blog such as this
    require a large amount of work? I have virtually no understanding of programming but I
    was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you
    have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I just needed to ask.
    Cheers!
