Alan Turing Institute - Call for Data Study Group Participants

Closing date: 
Monday, 27 March 2023

The Alan Turing Institute's Data Study Groups are intensive five-day collaborative, sprint-style research activities which bring together organisations from industry, government, and the third sector, with talented multi-disciplinary researchers from academia. Organisations act as Challenge Owners, providing real-world problems to be tackled by researchers.

The next Turing Data Study Group which will be held in person at The Alan Turing Institute from 15 May - 26 May 2023.

The events provide a fantastic opportunity for early career researchers to rapidly develop their data science skills using real-world data. The event also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects and build links with The Alan Turing Institute and industry. We encourage PhDs, postdocs, and other early career researchers to apply.

Deadline to apply: Monday 27 March 2023 at Midday


The challenges put forward are:

  • Dstl - Using topic modeling to find emerging topics & trends in academic papers
  • Environmental Investigation Agency – Identifying Tiger Stripe Patterns
  • Johnson Mathey – Increasing Automation Using Machine Learning Methods
  • NBN Trust - Spatiotemporal analysis of species in the UK using the largest publicly accessible source of biodiversity data
  • Peak District National Park Authority - Using multi-spectral remotely sensed imagery to improve land cover classification
