Facebook To Open Artificial Intelligence Research Center In Montreal

Facebook Inc.(FB) plans to announce the opening of a new artificial-intelligence center in Montreal on Friday, according to media reports.

Facebook will hire researchers for the new center locally, report said, citing company spokesman.

The move comes after Alphabet and Microsoft have invested in the local AI research scene. The move comes a week after IBM said it would spend $240 million on a new AI lab in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Facebook opened an office in Montreal in 2013 in a move to better serve Quebec and French-speaking businesses. It also has offices in Toronto and Vancouver.
