Accelerating digital agriculture
The Enterprise Machine Intelligence and Learning Initiative (EMILI) was created in 2016 to prepare and empower the Manitoba economy to leverage digital disruption for success with a specific focus on digital agriculture.
EMILI is a digital agriculture accelerator, based in Manitoba with projects that span the country. We work with industry and academia to advance the adoption of intelligent technologies and to provide people with the skills and training required to succeed in a digital economy.
Our Strategic Pillars
Guided by our four strategic pillars, EMILI works with industry and academia to provide people with the connections, skills, training, and resources they need.
Innovation and research
We search out opportunities for alignment and collaboration to shorten the time it takes for knowledge to be mobilized between industry R&D priorities and academic research.
Skills, training, and talent development
We create opportunities for students from non-agriculture backgrounds to learn new skills while gaining hands-on experience and exposure to a wide variety of career opportunities in digital agriculture.
Collaborate with us
Working together, we can increase the integration of intelligent technologies, empower people with digital skills, support start-ups to grow in the prairies, and accelerate Canada's growth as a leader in digital agriculture.
