Dermatology Point-of-Care Intelligent Network
This AI-powered medical imaging network is working to ensure that Canadians with skincare
concerns, such as skin cancer, are able to see a doctor before their conditions become untreatable.
Earth Data Store
This platform for assessing the impact of increasingly frequent “extreme weather” is designed to
mitigate impacts on Canada’s resource sectors and the wellbeing of its citizens, while supporting
the growth of companies delivering products and services estimated to be worth $10 billion a year.
Forest Machine Connectivity
Using industrial Internet of Things technology to collect and analyze data, this project will improve
efficiency in the timber harvesting supply chain and bolster conservation efforts.
Predictive Analytics for Manufacturing Processes
Using quantum computing to predict faults in advanced manufacturing processes, this project will
reduce the failure rate of aircraft components and allow operators to address problems before
components are manufactured.
Tailored Health – Pharmacogenetics
This integrated approach to prescribing medication aims to get the right drug to the right person at
the right time through simple cheek swabs. This has the potential to drastically reduce adverse
reactions that are estimated to claim as many as 22,000 lives per year in Canada.
The Learning Factory
By digitizing segments of aerospace production lines, this project is creating new digitally-driven
industrial tools that will improve efficiency, profitability and safety.
The Secure Health & Genomics Platform Program
This project will accelerate the ability of Canadian innovators, researchers and health providers to
create innovative, more accessible precision-health treatments for all Canadians.
