Borealis AI is an Aritifical Intelligence research centre created by the Royal Bank of Canada. I joined the Vancouver lab as MLSE in July 2020! This is my first time working in the field of AI!
In this role I've been learning a ton about the processes and practices involved in deploying machine learning services to production (from seeing the researchers in action, to writing application-level code for the ML services, and performing DevOps tasks).
It's exciting to be part of an organization that cares so much about ethical AI, and I'm taking every opportunity I can to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that developers and users of real-life modern AI systems encounter.
