the great acceleration

Now more than ever, we can use AI innovations to stimulate economic growth, create business opportunities and build a healthier society.

After a successful launch of CrossOver: AI in Vancouver in December 2019, we return in 2020 in a virtual format.

We’ll look at how British Columbia and Canada can continue to develop as a global centre of excellence in artificial intelligence and related technologies and how to put these powerful new tools to work.

Produced by CityAge, with the support of the Artificial Intelligence network of British Columbia (AInBC), CrossOver: AI connects and catalyzes the network of leaders in our emerging AI ecosystem to take BC’s strengths to the national and global stage

CrossOver: AI will run over two days, in 2-3 hour sessions with scheduled content, (presentations and panels), pitch sessions with practical case studies, and interactive digital networking sessions. 

We plan to use
Attendify to host the event, as a best in class virtual event format.

And, that BC has the assets it needs to be globally competitive.
