More than 120 industrial firms, enabling organizations and world class research institutions, join forces to create SCALE.AI (Supply Chains And Logistics Excellence.AI), a Canadian industry-led Innovation consortium. Together they commit $700 millions in support of collaborative transformation projects leading to the accelerated development and early integration of next-generation AI-powered supply chains in our economy.

SCALE.AI is one of nine projects shortlisted by the federal government as part the final application phase of the Innovation Superclusters initiative. The two co-chairs of SCALE.AI, Helene Desmarais, CEO CEIM, and Louis Roy, President OPTEL GROUP, join with Mark Boyajian, President at CGI, SCALE.AI’s technology program coordinator, to acknowledge the strong participation of partners of the consortium in this strategic forum chaired by Michel Leblanc, President and CEO Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal* (CCMM).

It will implement next-generation supply chains and enable a widespread integration of AI applications in businesses of all sizes, driving revenue and performance. Click here to read more.
