EXHIBITION.

“You begin saving the world by saving one man at a time. All else is grandiose romanticism or politics.” – Charles Bukowski

The Electronic Recyling Association is a proud to present a series of intimate thought exchanges examining the most critical digital issues facing humanity. 

Our post-pandemic expedition began online with ‘The Soft Machine’ in May 2020 as we welcomed digital luminaries from Suncor, Enbridge, Enmax, Syncrude, University of Alberta, SAIT, ATB Financial, Alberta Energy Regulator, AltaML and Attabotics to discuss the evolution of Canada’s digital economy.  We continued our journey in September with the third chapter of ‘The Soft Machine’ exploring the state of digital ethics with AWS, OpenStack, Salesforce, Cobalt and Thomson Reuters.  

The inaugural chapter of ‘Academic’ will commence on November 19 and will present a masterclass in the art of contemporary cloud computing with Jim Love, Chief Information Officer at IT World Canada and five of Montreal’s leading cloud authorities.  The event will conclude with a live back-to-school laptop donation drive celebrating our successful ‘Lending a Lifeline by Lending a Lifeline’ program.  

We hope you will join us on our path towards an enlightened future built on the endless possibilities of technology-driven innovation.
