Fujitsu notes that Vancouver is an area that. together with surrounding regions. is home to numerous research institutions, such as the University of Toronto which is engaged in world-leading AI and quantum computing research.Furthermore, these regions are loci of innovative business ideas from the IT industry, demonstrated by a diverse business ecosystem that has witnessed the proliferation of many cutting-edge startup tech companies, including the quantum-computing software developer 1QB Information Technologies Inc.

The new Fujitsu business is set to benefit from the strong support and cooperation of the British Columbia government, and the Canadian government. With its new Vancouver AIHQ, Fujitsu seeks to become a key player in the North American, and global AI ecosystems.

Fujitsu Limited, Blue Lab Co., Ltd., and Personetics Technologies Ltd. have started a joint proof of concept (PoC) trial of AI-based solution Personetics Engage.
