On May 31, the Honourable Juanita Westmoreland-Traoré will receive a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, and give the commencement address at the Faculty of Law’s convocation ceremony.
Westmoreland-Traoré is the first African Canadian appointed judge in the history of Quebec. She also holds the distinction of being the first African Canadian law dean after her 1996 appointment at the Faculty of Law, University of Windsor. « J’ai été ravi d’apprendre que McGill soulignerait la remarquable contribution que l’honorable Juanita Westmoreland-Traoré a faite à notre société », a déclaré le doyen Robert Leckey. « Son dévouement à l’égalité et à l’accès à la justice est une source d’inspiration pour moi et pour de nombreux autres membres de la communauté de la Faculté de droit. »

Robots are playing a growing role in operating the heavy equipment that is used in every field of industry and exploration, including space exploration. So finding ways to visualize and train them is becoming increasingly important. Professor Jozsef Kövecses, of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Centre for Intelligent Machines, has developed, together with Montreal-based software company CM Labs Simulations, enhanced virtual prototyping and training simulators for various types of heavy equipment including space and ground-based robotics. Today, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) recognized their collaboration with the Synergy Award for Innovation (small and medium sized companies).

What’s the neuroscience driving our consumer decisions? How can retailers use artificial intelligence? Those are some of the questions at the heart of the Bensadoun School of #Retail Management, an inter-disciplinary, state-of-the-art school and research centre. The school was announced in May 2017, when shoe tycoon Aldo Bensadoun (BCom’64, LLD’12) made a $25-million gift to #McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management. Leading innovation in a fast-changing sector.

#McGill’s Amar Sabih demonstrates how a simple idea—using plastic sheeting backed by metal barriers to channel water—would be a better and faster way than using sandbags to prevent water damage to homes from flooding
