Major renovations are underway in an effort to recruit prestigious tenants — the real estate project is worth $60 million in total. (Martin Thibault/Radio-Canada) In an old Mile-Ex textile factory, a grouping of research labs, artificial intelligence companies and multimedia organizations are gathering under one roof as part of a new centre of excellence in artificial intelligence. The complex, called O Mile Ex, is at the corner of St-Urbain and St-Zotique streets. Its tenants are set to move in by the end of the year. Some companies already occupy the space, including Cirque du Soleil’s multimedia company 4U2C, video game company Behaviour and neuroscience research lab Rogue Research. Newcomers will include the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA), the Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO), French aerospace company Thales Group, and artificial intelligence solutions provider Element AI, which was co-founded by renowned computer scientist Yoshua Bengio. A centre for excellence in artificial intelligence is coming to Mile-Ex
