Last Thursday at Collège Ahuntsic, the unveiling of the new H2O communication project took place : the branding and website of the Pôle montréalais d’enseignement supérieur en intelligence artificielle, also known as the PIA. Funded by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec, PIA is an initiative bringing together twelve CEGEPs and seven Montreal universities. Its mission is to ensure a concerted response to the need for artificial intelligence formation in Montreal educational institutions.


The unveiling of the branding took place during the official launch of PIA which was held in the big auditorium of the Collège Ahuntsic in front of more than 200 representatives of the members of the Pole. At this moment, the assistance was able to discover the logo as well as the corporate signature Au devant de l’IA created by H2O communication. The public was also able to see PIA’s website.


In addition to the presentation of the branding and the website, those present at the launch of PIA were able to attend a panel of experts on the theme of AI, a challenge for higher education. The panel was composed by experts in artificial intelligence including Yoshua Bengio, professor at the University of Montreal and scientific director of MILA, Lyse Langlois, professor at Laval University and director of the International Observatory on Societal Impacts IA (OBVIA), and Mathieu Boisclair, General Manager of the College Center for Technology Transfer in CEECs at Bois-de-Boulogne and John-Abbott (JACOBB).


H2O Communication is proud of this achievement which allows the PIA to display a professional image and position itself as a central player in the field of artificial intelligence in Montreal.
