Trustworthy AI Lab researchers attend CNIB research retreat

As part of our ongoing collaboration with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, researchers from Ontario Tech’s Trustworthy AI lab and Human-Machine lab attended an annual research retreat at CNIB’s Lake Joe camp.

There are significant opportunities in the use of AI for assistive technology, and important questions to ask around accessibility in AI technology. Our strategic partnership means that we have the ability to tackle these challenges together, as well as provide experiential learning opportunities to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Trustworthy AI Lab Director writes Hill Times Op-Ed

Director of Ontario Tech’s Trustworthy AI Lab, Canada Research Chair in Trustworthy AI Dr. Peter Lewis, wrote an invited op-ed for Canadian political newspaper, The Hill Times.
