Amii and Artificial Intelligence: Fueling Alberta’s Diversification

Jared Smith

From an ancestral perspective, I’ve technically lived in Alberta since 1908, when my Great Grandfather’s horse died in Edmonton (pop.9350) en route to Vancouver from Halifax. Shortly after his arrival and only three years before the incorporation of his first business, Alberta’s reliance on oil began its long and tumultuous, boom-bust, one-hundred and twenty-five-year history.

Bounce Back

Jared Smith

I found myself in uncharted territory in 2015, shortly after my sister passed away at 39 years old following a long battle with Cancer. As with most of my peers in business and athletics, I considered myself to be resilient. I was considered a leader both on and off the field, in my family, my martial arts studio, the entrepreneurial community, and in my business. I was supposed to protect, defend, and be a source of calm when under pressure. However, shortly after she passed away, I crumbled. I felt that I had failed her, and we were all left in a state of desperation clinging to pieces of the wreckage as the storm raged all around us. I was tested for the first time in my life.

Open Sky

Jared Smith

We went to Lake Louise to escape Zoom and the suffocating, Covid-inspired Edmonton winter. It's hard to feel trapped when you are gliding on skates on a glacial lake, breathing fresh mountain air under big open skies. The previous few weeks of -36°C dark days had been tough on my fellow northerners. It was easy to feel pessimistic as we entered year two of rolling and unpredictable lockdowns, news about delayed vaccination schedules, and ongoing restrictions.
