Montreal AI Ethics Institute

The Montreal AI Ethics Institute is an international, non-profit research institute dedicated to defining humanity’s place in a world increasingly characterized and driven by algorithms. We do this by creating tangible and applied technical and policy research in the ethical, safe, and inclusive development of AI. Our goal is to build public competence and understanding of the societal impacts of AI and to equip and empower diverse stakeholders to actively engage in the shaping of technical and policy measures in the development and deployment of AI systems. We are a digital-first civil society organization that brings together a diversity of individuals from different disciplines, areas of expertise, and geographic regions. 

Pranveer Singh Institute of Technology 

There is a future we believe in, fostered by strong souls and inventive minds. We believe, the way to usher in change, is to empower young minds with a stellar education, thus creating the enablers of tomorrow…PSIT stands out as a premier centre of higher learning with a mission of pursuing excellence in education and research. The various departments, with their diverse and dynamic community of students, accomplished faculty offer a distinctive combination of some of the finest undergraduate and postgraduate programs, world class facilities and a residential campus set on a sprawling 80 acres of sylvan surroundings.

Penn State – Great Valley

Penn State Great Valley offers master’s degrees and graduate certificates in data analytics, technology, engineering, leadership, finance, and business. We pride ourselves on our highly-rated programs that teach students valuable practical skills through immersive learning. Faculty engage in cutting-edge research and work with a variety of corporate, government, and educational organizations. Our diverse student population has a multitude of opportunities to engage in research and apply their knowledge outside of the classroom, bridging the gap between theory and practice. Courses are offered in a flexible format to accommodate the demands of work, family, and life in general.
