Advances in high-performance computer architectures, and the way algorithms can take advantage of them, have been transformative for a variety of data science tasks.
This scientific programme at the Turing, in partnership with Intel, will build upon these successes through algorithm-architecture co-design, applications in health and life science, and by training a new generation of data scientists with the computational skills required to solve the major data analysis tasks of the future.
Researchers from both Turing and Intel are working collaboratively under the shared goal to shape the future of computation for data science.
As well as conducting research, the partnership is training a new generation of data scientists through The Alan Turing Institute’s doctoral programme, ensuring students are equipped with the latest data science techniques, tools, and methodologies.
In addition, Intel has dedicated a hardware architecture team at the Institute’s facilities in the University of Edinburgh so that new algorithms developed by The Alan Turing Institute feed into the design of Intel’s future generations of microprocessors.
Dr Anthony Lee has been appointed as Programme Director, to drive the Intel-Turing research activities. Anthony is a Computational Statistician in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick. He serves on the Editorial Board for Statistics and Computing and the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, and is the first Course Director of the BSc. Data Science degree at the University of Warwick.
