Alliance leads conversation on AI and the future of knowledge mobilization

How can KTT practitioners leverage new artificial intelligence (AI) tools to amplify their work? That was the question addressed by two experts at the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance’s 2024 Knowledge Translation and Transfer (KTT) symposium on April 30.

The Alliance—a collaboration between the Government of Ontario and the University of Guelph— brought together nearly 200 attendees from government, academia, industry and the regional community to share and build skills for the future of KTT in agri-food, with a focus on artificial intelligence (AI).
