WAI Image Recognition Organizing Lead

The WAI Canada Research Lab is a program spanning 10-12 weeks that empowers women in AI research and students with the expertise to create their machine learning projects. Our focus is on fostering mentorship and encouraging curiosity-driven learning to prepare participants for a future in AI.

This initiative is crafted to provide opportunities for individuals who have traditionally been underrepresented in the AI industry. Through the WAI Canada Research Lab, we are actively contributing to the development of a more inclusive and diverse tech culture.

Our goal is to develop intelligent algorithms addressing challenges in data analysis, planning, and decision-making.


The lab engages in interdisciplinary research covering DEI, Generative AI, ESG, Disability, Image Recognition, and other aspects and use cases of machine learning and AI.


The primary objective is to uncover the principles guiding the design, development, and deployment of artificially

intelligent systems.

Great opportunity for innovators, technologists, and students who would like to

prepare themselves before entering the industry. You would be given a chance to

present the case study as a paper in upcoming industry conferences.
