Montreal, July 23, 2020 - Camp iA is offering teenagers a free virtual conference by Mr. Rémi Quirion, Chief Scientist of Quebec, on August 13, from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

This summer, this camp is offered virtually to stimulate more than 200 teenagers from across Quebec to learn to program artificial intelligence. In addition to the various courses that are given, the camp offers about fifteen company visits and exclusive and free virtual conferences to inspire young people to pursue a career in STEM. The major players in technology thus offer privileged access to the reality of the labor market. A unique chance to discover companies at the cutting edge of technology and to dialogue with enthusiasts in several fields. 

Chief Scientist of Quebec 

Rémi Quirion is a Quebec neuroscience researcher who was offered, in July 2011, the position of Chief Scientist of Quebec by the provincial government. He is the first to assume this post, thus giving him great influence at the scientific level. Mr. Quirion assumes a role of popularizer and guardian of science and technology, particularly with his Facebook page which is very popular. It gives itself the mandate to communicate the latest scientific and technological discoveries and to deny false news to the population. 

The Techno Discovery Camp warmly thanks Mr. Quirion for the time he will give to the scientists of tomorrow in order to make them knowledgeable users and innovative creators. 

To register for the virtual conference, here is the Eventbrite link.
