The Alan Turing Institute

ATI logo

The University of Cambridge is one of the five University founder members of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national centre for data science research. The Institute brings together leading data science researchers from a range of disciplines to undertake innovative research with particular focus on data-centric engineering, high-performance computing, cyber-security, smart cities, health, the economy and data ethics. By bringing together leading data science researchers from across the world and building partnerships with industry, government and the third sector, the Institute seeks to generate far-reaching impact through developments in theory as well as in applications of cutting edge research to real-world problems.

Through Institute membership, the University intends to further its existing position as one of the UK’s leading institutions for data science research. Cambridge researchers are supported to spend time at the Institute’s London-hub and are encouraged to participate fully in the Institute’s vibrant research community by building new collaborations, supervising Institute-funded PhD students, and contributing to ground-breaking Institute-sponsored research. Through these opportunities researchers at Cambridge have privileged access to some of the most exciting developments in global data science research and to leading scholars from across the globe, which will provide new opportunities and ensure that Cambridge remains at the forefront of data science research in UK.

A brief summary of the University’s role in the Institute for use or adaption for grant applications is available here.

About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
