New partnership set to accelerate UK data science and artificial intelligence

The Alan Turing Institute and the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre to forge links between data science and artificial intelligence research and high-performance computing.

The UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence and a leading UK supercomputing centre dedicated to industry engagement have joined forces in order to accelerate data science and AI innovation in the UK.

A collaboration agreement signed between The Alan Turing Institute and the Hartree Centre, part of the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council, will see the two organisations bridging their mutual interests in the areas of data analytics, machine learning, modelling and simulation. The agreement will focus on driving real-world impact, drawing on the state-of-the-art high performance computing facilities at the Hartree Centre and the cutting-edge research taking place at the Turing to develop trustworthy, scalable AI solutions for large-scale deployment in industry and the public sector.

Adrian Smith, Director of The Alan Turing Institute, commented: “Data science and artificial intelligence research requires access to large computing facilities in order to enable intensive algorithms to operate and learn. It is critical that the Institute, as a national centre committed to driving impact in these sciences into real-world applications, partners with world-class facilities like the Hartree Centre to ensure we build data science and AI tools and software which match the needs of the UK’s industrial future. We look forward to working with the team at STFC to further develop our collaborative plans.”
