The Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing, whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing is considered to have laid the foundations for modern-day data science and artificial intelligence.

The University of Cambridge is a university partner of The Alan Turing Institute. Together with the Turing's university and industry partners, we work together to undertake collaborative research, apply our research to real-world problems and train the next generation.

More details can be found on the Institute’s website.

Turing university network

Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, Warwick and UCL who were selected as founder members when the Institute was created in 2015. Since November 2017 six universities (Birmingham, Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Queen Mary University of London) joined the Turing, and Bristol and Southampton are set to join. Current partnerships and collaborations can be found here.

Turing fellows and researchers

Over 400 researchers collaborate at the Turing. University of Cambridge researchers linked to the Turing can be found on the people page.

Turing research themes

Research themes at the Turing cover a huge range of disciplines. There is an every growing list of research disciplines which can be found here.
