IBM Canada | Smith Cognitive Computing Centre
IBM Canada and Smith School of Business launched a cognitive computing demonstration centre at Smith’s downtown Toronto campus. The Centre is the first facility of its kind at a Canadian business school.
The Centre is designed as a collaborative space that provides an exclusive artificial intelligence demonstration experience for IBM clients and partners in Canada. Smith students and faculty have access to cognitive and cloud technologies to enhance the learning, teaching, and research environment.
The Centre consists of seven interactive wall screens for clients and students to work directly with IBM technologies in a multi-media environment. Under this five-year collaboration, IBM is providing a number of annual internships for Smith students, providing real-world opportunities to work with IBM Watson technologies in a business setting.
