Impact stories

The Turing works with a range of academic and industry partners on diverse projects that vary in length and scope. As a relatively new institution, many of our exciting, challenging projects are ongoing, but some are already demonstrating impact. Below is a selection of stories showing how our research impacts the world.


Software engineers at the Turing, in collaboration with partners at Imperial College and UCL, have developed a user interface which aims to make running simulations more user-friendly, for both academic and industrial communities

Turing researchers from diverse fields have produced a new way of approaching fairness in algorithm-led decisions, by looking at the causes of certain factors that can often result in biased decision-making

Advice from Turing researchers, urging the need for individuals to have a legally binding right to have automated decisions made about them explained, is helping shape how the new EU data protection regulations will be implemented

Towards a greener grid
National Grid have been collaborating with researchers and doctoral students at the Turing to develop ways of making more accurate predictions of solar and wind power generation, to ultimately reduce emissions and produce a greener grid
