Adastra has launched a Global AI Innovation Centre in Montreal to accelerate the development and adoption of AI-powered business solutions, using Microsoft solutions including Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service.
Adastra is a global leader in developing data and AI solutions across industries, including financial services, manufacturing, automotive, and public sector for over 25 years.
The AI Innovation Centre will be focusing on North America, Europe, and the Middle East, and will prioritize unlocking value for organizations with Adastra’s generative AI offers.
“Montreal is quickly becoming a global epicentre for innovation in AI, and we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Global AI Innovation Centre, a pioneering endeavour that will set new standards in AI development,” added Carl Spitzer, Adastra’s Global Microsoft Lead.
“We will drive business transformation, influence global trends, and make Montreal a focal point of global AI advancements.”
Rather than utilizing open-source technology and exposing data to public consumption, Adastra and Microsoft’s partnership protects data on private instances of Azure OpenAI.
“Today’s launch of the Global AI Centre of Innovation in Montreal represents yet another milestone in our relationship with Microsoft and recognizes the burgeoning AI market growth in Montreal and around the world,” said Rahim Hajee, CEO Adastra North America.
