The Connect IT 2018 Experience

Exploring new paradigms in technology since 2005.

Join us in February 2018 as we dive into one of the hottest buzzwords in the tech community in Toronto, and across the globe - Artificial Intelligence. The conference will explore areas in Artificial Intelligence, with a focus on the impact on businesses and the future of work, as we see a rise in automation, machine and deep learning, chatbots, image and speech recognition, autonomous driving, and IoT.

Our speakers from a diverse set of backgrounds (including technical and strategy) will present various perspectives on AI and what opportunities it will create for us as students - and more importantly as future leaders.

Inspiring keynotes

Hear from industry leaders highlighting critical and controversial topics surrounding AI, pushing the delegates to explore a different approach to the future of AI.

Interactive expo

The Expo will run through a part of the conference and will feature a TechSpace, with startups and digital teams showcasing their innovative tech, and a Career Fair for companies actively recruiting for co-ops and new grads.

Case competition

In small teams delegates will compete in a case-based competition to apply their knowledge in the industry. The delegates will be judged on their ability to provide the most feasible and creative solution

Engaging workshops

A chance for the delegates and industry leaders to get to know each other on a personal level. In a smaller audience, companies showcase how they are leveraging AI and taking initiative to get ahead of the competition
