Singapore-based supply chain technology company Quincus recently announced its official expansion into Canada.
The business-to-business software-as-a-service platform says its new office will be located in Toronto. The research and development space will have “a primary focus on Machine Learning, AI, and Reinforcement Learning,” according to a statement from the company.
“The Toronto office will be our technical research hub,” said Katherina-Olivia Lacey, cofounder of Quincus. “Ideas will be made and solidified here.”
Christophe Pennetier, Director of Research at Quincus, is overseeing the Toronto office. Pennetier, who previously worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA, is leading a team of roughly one dozen to begin; however, Quincus hopes to double this figure by the end of the year.
The research coming out of this office will contribute to logistics and supply chain technology as well as numerous industries that rely on strategic location decision making, including autonomous vehicles, robotics, and video games.
“We know the work coming from this office will lead to novel innovation for the logistics industry and beyond,” said Lacey.
Founded in 2014, Quincus has nearly 200 employees globally. The company says it expects steady growth in Canada moving forward.
