The Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science and the Consulate General of China in Toronto are jointly hosting an Ontario-China AI and Robotics Collaboration Workshop on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018 in Toronto.
 
Establishing science and technology relationships with China is a priority for Ontario, based on the principle of mutual benefit. In 2008, 20013 and 2017, The Government of Ontario and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China signed three rounds of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Research and Innovation for a total of 15 years. A joint research funding program, Ontario-China Research and Innovation Fund (OCRIF), has been launched each year since 2011 to support bilateral strategic research collaboration projects. Please refer to the details of OCRIF on the OCE website.
 
Both governments of Ontario and China have identified AI and Robotics as strategic areas of focus for research and commercialization collaboration under the 2018 OCRIF program’s call for proposals.
 
The objectives of the workshop include:
  • Bring together leading academic and industry representatives from Ontario and China to share research and commercialization collaboration opportunities and the latest development trends in AI and Robotics;
  • Identify complementary strengths between Ontario and China in the area of AI and Robotics;
  • Promote academic and industry partnership development; and
  • Learn about how to apply for the OCRIF program to be launched in the fall of 2018.
