Artificial intelligence (AI) is redefining the frontiers of the space industry and radically transforming the sector. Several applications are emerging such as autonomous decision-making, astronaut medical assistance, anomaly detection, and predictive analytics. Many actors involved in the space industry are integrating or beginning to show their willingness to progressively integrate AI into their technologies. Space innovation has always been and always will be a promising area and represents a nascent market with rapid growth.
To that end, Euroconsult and Innovitech have chosen to combine their expertise to create a unique event: AIxSPACE. For the first time, this conference will bring together key stakeholders in space and artificial intelligence industries to allow everyone to obtain concrete information on these markets and connect with potential business partners, positioning themselves at the forefront of the sector.

To ensure the health and safety of participants, speakers and our teams, AIxSPACE has been held online on January 18 and 19, 2021, over two half days.
With over 330 participants and nearly 50 international speakers, the first edition of AIxSPACE was a resounding success, highlighting the need to further encourage companies to join and position themselves on this emerging market. This attendance was also coupled by a real motivation to connect among industries, with over 1,128 messages exchanged on the platform and 471 B2B meetings requests.
The success of the event reflected the need for Quebec and Canada to position themselves as leaders in this unfolding market to become one of the central poles of AI in space. With a well-established AI hub in Montreal and a growing space presence, the territory has a real potential for investment and innovation development. As Sylvain Cofsky, CEO of Innovitech simply said, "artificial intelligence will be the key" and with such a successful first event, it is hard to imagine that this will not be the case.
