Invest in AI Education - Start now before it's too late!

In China, the government has invested $1 billion on an Artificial Intelligence (AI) research park.

Try, Fail, Learn, Improve, Repeat

How do we improve quickly? We need to learn quickly. I proposes that the City challenge itsself to experiment in all areas of its services and operation. Create a method to track experiments, outcomes, and lessons learned. Perfection is not key, volume is key. If you miss 100% of the shots you don't make, make more shots at the basket.

Blockchain

I believe that the City of Calgary could best develop a proposal for Smart City funding if it were to commit to developing capabilities for the development and deployment (the tough part) of blockchain technologies. This is not about one particular project per se, but rather a commitment to build upon the City's current capabilities in blockchain and create highly visable, highly valuable, cost-effective projects that... more »

Include tcket fair for LRT/BUS in event ticket
