TECHNOLOGY CONVERGENCES FOR AN EXTRAORDINARY FUTURE
Meaningful and exponential transformation in an accelerated manner
Build a future of abundance with technology.
What has happened to the evolution of technology? Despite the progress we experience today, the hype of our technological future is not being fulfilled. With little ambition to radically transform the present and the slow adoption of exponential technologies, gradually, we will lead to a better tomorrow, but not an extraordinary one.
Bold New Edge seeks to catalyze innovation to build an extraordinary future at an accelerated pace. We accomplish this by shifting the paradigm from incremental to exponential growth.
Transformative ambition to create new possibilities.
Transformative Purpose and exponential mindset as starting point
Conversations about the biggest challenges we face today and the great business opportunities behind their solutions
Co-design of mission-oriented projects
EXPONENTIAL TECHNOLOGY CONVERGENCES
Dissemination and adoption of exponential technologies and science.
Focus on exponential technologies that are capable of making a large-scale positive impact on everyone
Promote and co-design strategic collaborations and provide convergence of exponential technologies
Adoption and implementation of Artificial Intelligence (and other exponential technologies) in sectors with high transformational potential
INNOVATION AT THE EDGE
Agile and creative innovation practices.
Agile and significant impact by eliminating the organization’s immune system

NEW VENTURES CREATION
Knowledge Transfer Lab
We are accelerating technology innovation based on unused knowledge assets. This initiative aims to go from Knowledge to Value Creation.
This space for collision and speculative design brings the necessary key personas in the innovation practice and will raise tech/science projects that otherwise will never see the light of day
Academia and Industry collide, exchanging, building relationships that didn't exist before, and serendipity.
Knowledge assets valorized by catalyzing mobilization of academia, industries, and innovators
Explore new venture creation from technical and scientific insights via speculative applications in the real market and storytelling
A selected number of the scouted knowledge assets will then be made available to well-defined targeted personas interested in exploring conceptual market applications via three work sessions.
This lab aims to find insight, create new value from the knowledge assets, and inspire participants to run functional prototypes and new ventures.
AI Literacy for Leaders
"AI Literacy for Leaders" is a program that aims to educate company decision-makers (entrepreneurs, executives, department heads, project, and product managers) to grasp best the basics of strategic management of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the design of projects with a solid foundation of this technology within real-world industrial applications.
Executives and the head of departments
AI project managers, product managers, and product owners
Government (public managers).
20% of the training will be dedicated to the "mindset" of the participants. They will be introduced to the mindset of exponential organizations targeting deep transformations within organizations. This mindset will strongly impact the projects that participants will present at the end of the training.
The remaining 80% is focused on AI technology know-how.
Assess data readiness for the implementation of specific ML/AI capabilities in a business context, and use this to assess the feasibility of use cases.
Acquire the skills and knowledge to formulate and evolve these strategies themselves.
Possess the tools necessary to structure, implement, and manage projects where AI is applied.
Discover and explore new opportunities where to implement and execute the use of AI.
AI for Interdisciplinary Convergences
Advancing the integration of artificial intelligence into various industries by fostering multidisciplinary collaboration, educating and training professionals, and promoting innovative AI solutions.
The necessary tools for the new generation of engineers and scientists to help them in sectors that will undergo significant changes due to the integration of artificial intelligence.
Knowledge of machine learning techniques, their practical application, and the tools available in the participant's field of application.
Responses to the need for adopting artificial intelligence by Canadian industries in the fields of health, life sciences, industry 4.0, the blue economy, energy, and finance of our strategic partners.
First and second-cycle students currently enrolled or recently graduated in the following fields:
Life Sciences (biology, neuroscience, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, synthetic biology, maritime studies)
*Some experience in mathematics, programming, and data science is expected.
Relevance of the Project: Develops their skills by combining new knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence with their current specialties.
Value for Partners: Opportunity for industrial partners to collaborate with professionals with backgrounds in engineering or science.
Economic and Social Impact: Multidisciplinary professionals better equipped to transition to digital transformation and implement AI.
