In September of 2022, Protein Industries Canada (PIC) launched an Artificial Intelligence Program, focused on working with agri-food companies across the country to support them in developing AI technology for use in their business.
The program’s first round of applications saw a steady flow of intake, the organization says, with projects currently under review for approval. PIC has now announced another round of applications.
PIC expects the sector’s interest in utilizing AI to grow. With the proper data strategies and partners in place, companies can use AI to address challenges related to ingredient development, process optimization, and recipe formulation, the organization says.
The new intake began January 9, 2023 and will close on February 15, 2023. You can apply, here.
