We will do this both through basic research into theoretical scientific problems, and through applying our cutting-edge science to real-world problems, and with recognition of the important legal, ethical and societal implications of these technologies.

We channel our research around a number of ambitious challenges which represent areas in which AI and data science can have a game-changing impact for science, society, and the economy. These challenges will not be led by the Turing alone, but depend on significant collaboration and partnerships.

We channel our research around a number of ambitious challenges which represent areas in which AI and data science can have a game-changing impact for science, society, and the economy. These challenges will not be led by the Turing alone, but depend on significant collaboration and partnerships.

Core capabilities

The challenges are supported by the broad range of research strengths and capability in the Institute:

System architecture
Security and robustness
Core statistics: complex structure in data
Machine learning and artificial intelligence
Mathematical modelling of complex systems
Understanding human behaviour
Ethics in data science and artificial intelligence
