The RBC Innovators' Ball is a unique gala held at the Ontario Science Centre that showcases how innovation is impacting our lives through Ted-talk type presentations. Now in its 11th year, this high-profile gala will bring together over 510 business leaders and raise funds to support the Science Centre and its vital community access programs ensuring that a visit to the Centre is accessible for all members of our community.

  • Kamran Khan MD MPH and his team at BlueDot are tackling the spread of global epidemics using artificial intelligence,
  • Brendan Frey PhD FRSC and Deep Genomics work using machine learning to unlock new treatments at the genetic level, and
  • Andrea Palmer has developed a wearable tech – Reveal, that monitors and supports those with developmental and neurological disorders in a revolutionary way. To learn more about the 2017 event, please click here to read our media release.
