Robotics and AI stand in the way of sustainable development. There are hundreds of companies, large and small, that are dedicated to this topic. Of course, successes in certain sectors are not without their own.

SKEMA has been at the forefront of the industry since the opening of its Artificial Intelligence Research Centre in Montreal in 2019 and continues to gain momentum with the creation of the SKEMA AI Institute.

The company’s successes in artificial intelligence include:
- SKEMA’s creation of an “Artificial Intelligence Faculty” with more than 20 professors and researchers divided into 4 interdisciplinary areas: AI fundamentals; AI, economics and finance; AI, marketing and management; AI, operations, supply chain, and information technology;
- Integration of AI specialization into the global Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program.

The Computer Science Departments keep a very close eye on developments in networking technology and make great efforts to ensure that the latest advances in the field are very quickly incorporated into the educational process or that students use them in their degree projects.

The most significant development in the field of distributed networks between 2019 and 2020 is SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networks) technology, which will be increasingly used in 2021.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is an automated software-based approach to managing branch connections into a single, branched, distributed structure. It extends software-defined networking (SDN) into a solution that companies can use to quickly create a smart hybrid WAN that includes MPLS, LTE, broadband, and wireless connectivity.
