AI4HW Joint Research Centre

AI4HW Canada/Australia

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in AI for Health and Wellness (AI4HW) is a unique collaborative research centre between Ontario Tech University and the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Nowhere else in the world exists a similar innovative advanced prototyping and simulation environment to support next-generation health and wellness solutions.

The AI4HW JRC focuses on creating innovative ways to assess and improve health, wellness, resilience and adaption through world-leading research in:

  • Data analytics, with a focus on Big Data analytics and AI.
  • Internet of Things (the interconnection of Internet-enabled computing devices embedded into everyday objects).
  • Stream computing (the ability to capture and analyze data from multiple sources in real time, and derive insights from that data to make faster and better decisions).
  • Cloud computing (delivery of computing services over the Internet).
  • ‘Serious’ games that simulate real-life experiences, used for practical applications such as teaching.


Collaboration Areas for students at Ontario Tech University

  • Joint international PhD program (known as a ‘cotutelle’).
  • New international research projects involving Ontario Tech’s ACE, along with the faculties of Business and Information Technology; Energy Systems and Nuclear Science; and Health Sciences.
  • Internal summer exchange opportunities and internships for undergraduate students.
  • Postdoctoral fellowship opportunities.
