Building an artificial intelligence-enabled robot
About the initiative
Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer the stuff of science fiction, and robotics is one of the fields most strongly influenced by AI.
Through this initiative, young people will build a smart robot using the principles of AI to prepare them for a future driven by AI and machine learning. Schools, youth organizations, science centres and museums across Canada will be able to participate (date to be determined).
Because our country is an emerging leader in AI, more of our future jobs will involve AI. An initiative like this can prepare youth to succeed in an increasingly automated world.
Canada is also a leader in space robotics, which is advancing to include autonomous operations. For example, the Lunar Gateway's Canadarm3 will be able to maintain itself in space thanks to these advances.
