Digital transformation and AI

Presentation

Each year CIRANO identifies a thematic which will structure part of the scientific animation. Aligned with our strategic plan, the chosen thematic for 2019-2020 is: Digital transformation and AI.

This thematic will allow for the exploration of current issues such as the effects of digital transformation on employment and training, and the transformation of private and public organizations.

Our 2019-2020 research programming will adopt this thematic by organizing several activities and conferences on that subject. CIRANO’s products, Le Québec Économique, CIRANO’s Barometer and Mondo International will also adhere to this thematic.

The 9th edition of Le Québec économique will cover this thematic and will be structured around research projects stemming from the Pôle CIRANO sur les impacts socio-économiques de l’innovation numérique et de l’IA.

Apart from the general questions raised in CIRANO’s Barometer, a specific case study on the concerns of Quebeckers in regards to the issues of AI will be undertaken for the second year in a row in 2019, and will not only be the subject of a chapter in Le Québec Économique 2019 but will also give rise to conferences with partners and other relevant stakeholders in Québec.

The site of Mondo International will present data concerning, for example, investments in research and development, number of patents in AI in different countries, etc. This will allow for a comparison of Québec and Canada data with the rest of the OECD countries as a first step, and the rest of the world as a second step.

The Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organisations (CIRANO) presents its annual theme for 2018-2019: Sustainable Development.

Explore current issues related to the environment and climate change such as social and international sustainable development issues, green growth and innovation, energy transition, and public policies that promote sustainable development.

The annual theme of Sustainable Development is in line with CIRANO's research concerns and several researchers, in all fields of expertise, are already studying the many issues related to it.

CIRANO's 2018-2019 research program reflects CIRANO's interest in this theme with several activities and conferences on the subject as well as various analyses through the various CIRANO products.

The Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organisations (CIRANO) presents its annual theme for 2017-2018: education.

An accessible and efficient education system allows an economy to grow while facing the challenges of the future. Beyond international trade in goods and services, developed economies are increasingly relying on the human capital that can be accumulated through investment in education to differentiate themselves in their ability to assimilate and implement new technologies and to innovate.

Education is one of CIRANO's research concerns and several researchers are studying the various contemporary issues of the education system.

During the year, several activities and conferences will be organized on this theme. Finally, CIRANO products will adopt education in several analyses.

CIRANO Products

Le Québec Économique

With realistic portraits and quality analyses, “Le Québec économique” project aims to fuel debate on issues that interest and affect all Quebecers. By contributing to the understanding of current issues, “Le Québec économique” is a must on the Quebec economic scene.

Created in 2009 with the purpose of taking stock of the recession aftermath, “Le Québec économique” has evolved over the years. As a CIRANO flagship project, it now comprises:

  • The Québec économique website: The informational portal on current Quebec economy
  • Seven collective works of Le Québec économique series
  • A publication in the “Point de mire sur le Québec économique” collection

Collective works of Le Québec économique series

The books of Le Québec économique series focus on the vulgarization of research and bring together a set of chapters from various authors. Some of the chapters are of a general nature, but the majority of the chapters are part of a chosen theme for each volume. These thematic chapters derive mainly from projects carried out at CIRANO or from its associated researchers. Each chapter addresses an aspect of the chosen theme and eventually proposes avenues for reflection on public policy avenues that could be followed by Quebec to reach its objectives on these matters.

Mondo

Mondo is a unique database that simultaneously provides macroeconomic data, data on international commerce as well as sectorial and innovation data. Beyond those variables, this represents a paradigm change. We believe that traditional databases are focused on a mercantile approach and may lead to biased analysis. By having access to sectorial data, we incite the user to think in terms of a meso-economic context. This data brings us closer to the reality of globalization and translates into the implementation of global value chains (GVC) from multinational companies (MNC). The thought process is motivated by the consideration of those GVC and the reasons for the attractiveness of certain sectors in emerging countries.

Presentation

The Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organisations (CIRANO) presents its annual theme for 2016-2017: Infrastructure.

International organizations are formal: all countries must invest more in infrastructure. The objective is to develop and maintain a network of advanced infrastructure to support economic growth.

For developed countries, the main challenge is to face the challenge posed by the ageing of infrastructure, which is sometimes more than a century old. In Quebec, this challenge is particularly acute because of the simultaneous rehabilitation of many infrastructures built in the 1960s and 1970s.

At the public level, risks related to transport infrastructure and risks related to the health system are systematically included in the three most worrying risk categories in 2011, 2013 and 2016.

Presentation

The Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organisations (CIRANO) presents its annual theme for 2015-2016: innovation and the economy of sharing.

Innovation, including social innovation, is at the heart of CIRANO's research concerns. Many researchers are studying public policies and identifying the most innovative sectors to ensure that Quebec and Canada remain competitive on the international scene.

The Experimental Economics Laboratory, technological platforms, databases and analytical models developed by CIRANO researchers show that CIRANO is also an actor in innovation. We are currently experiencing changes that are disrupting all sectors. These breakthrough innovations are changing economic models.

We therefore wish to focus on innovation as the driving force of our economy, but also on disruptive innovations that "disrupt" existing models.

Several activities and conferences will be organized on this theme.

Presentation

Each year CIRANO identifies a theme that will structure part of the scientific activities. Given the special context in which we find ourselves due to the pandemic and, by the same token, the rapid transformation of society in all aspects of digital technologies, CIRANO has chosen to continue in 2020-2021 on the same theme as last year, but in a context with and after COVID-19 where "society will have become more digital".


This continuation of our theme will allow us to further explore certain current issues, particularly in light of the effects of the COVID-19 crisis, but also of the opportunities that may arise in this crisis, such as the acceleration of the adoption of digital technology in certain sectors, for example. Issues around workers' skills, numeracy levels, new forms of education, telework, telemedicine, to name but a few, but also issues of inequalities that may emerge will be studied by our researchers.


The acceleration of the digital transformation will have many effects on the functioning of private and public organizations as well as for all stakeholders in society.
