Silo AI, one of Europe’s largest private Artificial Intelligence (AI) labs, is proud to announce a partnership with Mila - Quebec AI Institute, the world’s largest academic deep learning research center. Founded by the leading AI researcher, Yoshua Bengio, Mila brings together more than 1,000 academic researchers in machine learning (ML). The partnership aims to connect state-of-the-art AI research with industry needs. With a strong experience in building AI-driven products, Silo AI has gathered a unique pool of AI talent including 240 AI experts, out of which 120 have a PhD degree.
“We’re extremely happy about this partnership, which is in line with our goal of connecting leading AI scientists with real-world problems and helping companies succeed in building cutting-edge AI. Given our strong roots in academia, the collaboration is a natural step in our expansion outside Europe, with a focus on Canada as a global leader in AI research. Having served Canadian clients for the past few years, we’re excited to continue our wider expansion in North America with Mila,” says Peter Sarlin, CEO of Silo AI.
“We warmly welcome Silo AI to Mila and to the broader AI ecosystem in Montreal, Canada. Both of our organizations share the commitment to tackle real-world problems and build world-class AI applications, which is why this association is a natural fit for us. This partnership will be valuable for Mila as a research institute and to our industry partner network”. says Yoshua Bengio, Mila’s Founder and Scientific Director.
Mila’s partnership network covers both organizations with strong ML capabilities and organizations in need of AI expertise. The industry network serves among other things for finding expertise and sharing best practices. With its 110+ partners, Mila has completed projects to accelerate the development of AI. The partners also collaborate in research, as one third of the 500+ peer-reviewed articles published by Mila’s researchers in 2022 have been co-authored with industry partners.
Some of the current partners include Meta, Microsoft, Google, Intel, IBM, Roche and Amgen. Silo AI is the first Nordic company to enter into a partnership with Mila. The partnership further strengthens the relationship between leading AI scientists and researchers, contributing to connect the AI nodes in the Nordics and Montreal.
The collaboration strengthens Silo AI’s presence in Canada, where the company has ambitious growth plans. In the near future, Silo AI looks at establishing its own offices in Canada, to better serve its expanding Canadian clientele. Canada and more widely North America present an interesting market for Silo AI. Thanks to its thriving technology sector and capable AI talent, it is a favorable environment for the company to expand and help companies build and scale AI. Canada has a high concentration of development initiatives in the field of AI particularly in maritime, heavy machinery and smart devices, which are some of the key areas of domain expertise at Silo AI.
