A talk on AI (Artificial Intelligence) titled “Managing the development of AI and Machines that learn” presented by the CEO of nuenergy.ai, Niraj Bhargava.
It is widely acknowledged that AI technology will
transform organizations and society around the globe – and with recent
advancements in processing power, data accessibility, and algorithms we
suddenly find ourselves at the beginning of this transformation.
Introducing the Machine Trust Index (MTI), assisting us to boldly
proceed with a responsible, innovative spirit. The goal of the MTI is to
establish an open and versatile framework for measuring and managing
trust in the evolving sphere of AI. The MTI provides measurable
evidence, transparency and accountability of an AI solution, allowing
providers to effectively communicate the value of their solutions as
well as their measurable trustworthiness.
Niraj Bhargava is Founder and CEO of NuEnergy.ai,
the developers of the Machine Trust Index™ (MTI) for managing AI
deployments. He is also Chair of the Innovation Committee of the Board
at the Royal Ottawa. Niraj was President and CEO of Enerstat
Limited, and led it through its turnaround and acquisition, Founding CEO
of QCED Inc., a faculty member in Entrepreneurship at Queen’s
University, a Director of the Queen’s Executive MBA, and then Dean of
the Business School at Royal Roads University. Niraj practiced
engineering at Bell-Northern Research and global marketing at General
Electric, and was the founding General Manager of GE Energy Management. Niraj was the founding CEO of Fluent.ai in Montreal and Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Energate Inc.

Status of the Internet in Canada and the importance of Canadian IXP’s
Chief Technology Officer, CIRA/.CA
A quick overview of the Canadian Internet exchange landscape from coast to coast to coast. Canada has its share of challenges and opportunities in building and growing the IXP infrastructure near the Canadian border, and also to support the need of the rural communities.
As an expert in developing innovative, leading-edge IT solutions, Jacques has established CIRA as a global leader among ccTLD registries. He has 25+ years of experience in the private and not-for-profit sectors and as CIRA’s CTO,is currently leading CIRA Labs, CIRA’s innovation hub and providing leadership and direction for the management and security of the .CA registry and its underlying DNS.
A visionary in the Internet community, Jacques led the development of CIRA’s Internet Performance Test, is an outspoken advocate for the adoption of IPv6 and represents the .CA registry internationally as a member of a variety of working groups and advisory groups, including being a member of ICANN’s Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC), TLDOPS standing committees and TechDay and DNSSEC Planning Program Committee.
Jacques is committed to the development of a new Canadian Internet architecture. He has served as the catalyst for the creation of a national Canadian IXP association, CA-IX, and is a member of the Manitoba Internet Exchange’s (MBIX) and the DNS-OARC Board of Directors.
Jacques holds an Electronics Engineering Technologist diploma from Algonquin College in Ottawa, is ITIL v3 Foundation certified and is a certified Agile ScrumMaster.

The role of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) in
bringing about a revolution in almost all aspects of human life needs no
introduction. It is indeed a well-known fact that the transmission of
information at a rapid pace has transformed all spheres of human life such as
education, health, and economy to name a few. In addition, with the advent in
Electronics and Photonics Technology (EPT), we have observed sustained growth
and expansion in computation and display technology. From user demography
perspective, urbanized population are the major beneficiary of such advances.
Therefore, the benefits of ICT and EPT are yet to be experienced by almost 4
billion people in the world who are still “unconnected or under-connected” and
suffer as such from the “digital divide,” a term coined in order to emphasize
the lack of ICT infrastructure in many parts of the world.
Major challenges for widespread adoption of ICT and EPT in
these areas are related to cost, lack of power supply, and complexities
associated with learning and usage. However, if we can categorically overcome
these challenges, then these technologies can be used for food, water, shelter,
energy, environment, education, healthcare, and security. In addition, the
wide-spread availability of these technologies, will lead to smart suburbs,
smart towns, smart villages, etc., without the need to necessarily live in
smart cities. This would reverse the trend and allow a more sustainable world
with a more balanced distribution of the population density. In this context,
this talk will present recently proposed solutions to provide high speed
connectivity in rural areas along progress in affordable electronics to serve
and contribute to the development of far-flung regions.
In particular, new solutions for both: (i) integrated
satellite-airborne-ground networks providing global coverage and connectivity
and (ii) terrestrial mesh/multi-hop directive networks connecting underserved
areas will be discussed.
Moreover, some examples of democratized wearable
electronics using Do-It-Yourself (DIY) assembly of paper along Android DIY
applications capturing and displaying vital health signs over connected
smartphones for real-time diagnosis will be presented.
