Themes

 

The central objective of this conference is to provide a forum for exchanging views, ideas and information relating to “Innovation, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Data analysis, and Big Data”. There is a considerable recognition that through collaboration, the nuclear industry needs to move forward and deal with the challenges it faces as it enters the 21st century. Influence of AI and ML on our daily lives is more than ever, industries are adopting AI to their benefits and the nuclear industry in Canada is not exempted from this. Innovation is what kept our industry so strong for the past 40 years and it will keep us strong in the future.
