The club was founded in January 2017 after the initial Facebook Group attracted more than a 100 students. The first semester the club organized more than 12 events, mainly tutorials and showed that McGill Students were extremely interested in AI and ML. During the second semester (Fall 2017), we organized the first ever hackathon in Montréal focused on Artificial Intelligence, namely ImplementAI. Following this, the club attracted of a lot of small startups and more established sponsors, making bigger and higher quality events.
