The Artificial Intelligence for Design (AI for Design) Challenge program will develop and provide AI technologies and capabilities to accelerate discovery, R&D, and innovation processes.
Areas of focus
With its collaborators, the AI for Design Challenge program will advance algorithms, methods and datasets to assist engineers, researchers and scientists with design and scientific discovery.
Collaborate with us
We invite collaborators at Canadian and international universities, colleges, centres of excellence, not-for-profit organizations, governmental research organizations, and highly innovative firms with an interest in applying AI to scientific discovery and development to express their interest in collaborating with the program.
Contribution funding is available to help defray the costs of research for academic institutions, small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and other eligible recipients collaborating with the NRC.
