About Artificial Intelligence 

CIFAR plays a significant role in artificial intelligence research in Canada and around the world. We helped to enable some of the fundamental breakthroughs in the field through our Learning in Machines & Brains program, a program which continues to deliver ground breaking research. We lead a $125 million national strategy to establish Canada's international leadership in AI. And we run a program that explores the ways that AI will reshape our society and how we should respond. 



The CIFAR AI Catalyst Grants program is now closed.

The grants will catalyze new research areas, collaborations and new applications in machine learning in science and society at large. A list of successful applications will be posted in April 2020.
