The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence whose mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
The DSG Principal Investigator (DSG PI) will be required to take academic ownership of a singular DSG challenge. They are responsible for:
This is an opportunity for early career researchers to gain valuable real-world experience working collaboratively with industry, government or third sector. Support and training will be offered in and around ethics, communicating with industry and project design.
Dstl – The Discovery project seeks to enable semi-automated horizon scanning to understand the shifting science and technology (S&T) landscape. Topic modelling is used to find topics and trends in content from academic journals for monitoring purposes, allowing the user to identify emerging technology
Leading Pharmaceutical Company – The project aims to develop a solution that can allow researchers to extract and consolidate actionable insights from published sources in near real-time leveraging natural language processing (NLP). This will be a proof-of-concept project focusing on extracting actionable insights
Biodiversity Challenge - This challenge presents an exciting opportunity for researchers to work on the UK’s largest publicly accessible source of biodiversity data. The challenge of this data set is considerable: heterogeneous sources of data, aspects of both spatial and temporal analysis.
Manufacturing Challenge - The project aims to develop an effective machine learning methodology capable of dynamic predications that will enable, at minimum, more effective optimisation of dynamic plants, hopefully leading to more optimal chemical plants can reduce environmental impact, by consuming less resources per unit of production.
Duties & Person Specification
