ReMI Launches New Website

JUNE 2020, FRI 19


The Resilient Machine Learning Institute (ReMI), an important initiative which Ultra is a primary sponsor of, just launched a new website.    Ultra has been working closely with l’École de technologie supérieure (ETS) as well as several other strategic partners over the course of several years to launch the project.    The ReMI mission is clear – to bring together the best minds across industry and academia in order to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) technologies for mission-critical networks.    Developers will use cutting-edge AI/ML techniques to ensure networks of the future are self-maintaining, self-organizing and self-healing in a way that was never possible before.  

Networks, especially those that are deployed during disasters, are very difficult for operators to configure and optimize – especially if they don’t have a technical network management background.  Initially, ReMI’s AI/ML technology will provide a mix of operator assistance and autonomous interventions to ensuring networks are functioning flawlessly.  Ultimately, ReMI’s multi-agent, decentralized AI/ML technology will enable the autonomous deployment of those networks with optimal performance with little to no operator involvement during crises.  

The ReMI project is well funded and has over thirty students, faculty and Ultra engineers working on it presently, with the aim of growing the team to fifty people by end of year.      

“The ReMI project has made great progress since its inception and we’re very pleased with the level of engagement we are seeing within both the wireless communications and AI/ML communities in Montreal” said Dr. Gwenael Poitau, CTO at Ultra and also Data Science Director of the ReMI institute.   “AI/ML is disruptive technology which will strongly impact next-generation mission-critical networks and we’ve assembled a highly-qualified, cross-functional team with decades of experience to make it happen.   Stay tuned to the new ReMI website for more great news about the project.”

If you would like to be a part of the ReMI initiative, we would love to hear from you!  Please use the contact form on the ReMI website.   The website will be updated frequently with news of the Institute and its projects.
