To help local businesses adopt artificial intelligence

Anyone who wants to hear it says so. It can help companies improve their productivity and it is not magic.

Isabelle Cayer has created a training course called Artificial Vision and Intelligent Absorption of Natural Resources (VIARENA) to make the knowledge about artificial intelligence readily available and applicable.

What I’m trying to do is bring back the digital economy to this regionSaid the director. It doesn’t just happen through CEGEP, research centers and universities. It goes through companies that have a very concrete demand.

The development work was carried out in collaboration with Artificial Intelligence Physician, Intelligence Entrepreneur and Consultant and Cégep de Matane.

The training will focus on exploitation of natural resources, leading economies in the region, such as fisheries, forestry, agriculture, green energy and mining.

A patentee, for example, can always create an artificial vision tool to observe animals, fish, forests or fields.

Its director CDRIN Explains that the purpose behind the training is to support farmers, pastoralists, fishermen. In short, it invites all those who work with natural resources and want to manage resources more sustainably.

He reminds us that artificial intelligence is already at the service of natural resources, but the potential is just waiting to be explored.

No details avoid artificial vision

What’s interesting, Mrs. Care argues, is that computer vision works all the time; In an assembly line, in a truck, in a tractor, in a field with a drone. We can collect pictures, videos and send it to a computer that processes the data.

This information, he argues, could later be used to look back at a specific event or to identify defects in the production chain.

Isabel Care gives an example of a bird detection application through song. As people use it, it becomes more accurate and comprehensive. The more he is fed, the more he learns, the more he performsHe explains.

In the long run, users can collect seasonal data and then see the effects of climate changeHe cites another example. Instead of always being responsive to adapt to change, one can be proactive.

LawAI It can also solve the problem of lack of manpower.

If we don’t think anymoreAI Will steal jobs. One wonders how this can help companies continue to provide services without breaking the supply chain. A

Bringing back the digital economy to the region

Even if the course is designed for regions like Bas-Saint-Laurent or Gaspésie, according to Isabel Care, the formula applies everywhere.

Isabel Kayer also emphasizes thatAI A tool among many others. It’s not an antidote, but I think it’s important to explore this option, then it seems we’re on the train, we’re in our area too.He says

I would like to see companies in regions that are able to offer high-end digital solutions without having to call our Quebec, Montreal, He says. .

We have vital energy, we are alive, we want to be here. How do we get our piece of pie? A

Also, training creates a sense of morality.

We have to think about the way we use itHe observes. It can be used for good, but bad. So we take the participants this way. We wonder if it is morally acceptable.

Currently, three companies in the region, Matane Cube Nair and Borrask, as well as Chandler’s Jollyfish, have acquired expertise for application development. AI.

Training Vieira Accessible via the EDUlib platform. It’s free and requires no prerequisites. Each develops at its own pace.
