Amber Mac’s The AI Effect Wins Best Technology Series at the Canadian Podcast Awards

Canada’s dominance in the artificial intelligence space is drawing attention from tech leaders and entrepreneurs around the world, with a wealth of well-funded start-ups, dedicated research facilities and some of the brightest minds in the field. It’s no surprise that The AI Effect, innovation expert Amber Mac’s acclaimed podcast series, won the “Best Technology Series” at this year’s Canadian Podcast Awards.    

Covering the unprecedented pace of AI’s growth (and all the rewards and perils that go with it), The AI Effect’s guests have included Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Joelle Pineau of the Facebook AI Research Lab.
