Digital and Data Cluster Group

We see opportunities to explore the intersections of technology, digital innovation, and transformation.

A digital and data revolution

We are in the midst of a digital and data revolution.

Vast and complex data sets are being generated and analysed. This is happening across a broad spectrum of disciplines at an unprecedented rate.

Digital innovation is transforming working practices, business models and human interaction and behaviour.

New markets are forming. They stretch beyond existing regulation and the horizon of policy makers.

Data analysis a key tool

In the era of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we find ourselves in a place where technology is impacting on all areas of society.

We want to explore the tensions and opportunities that arise from the intersection of technology and social, economic, health and cultural transformation. 

Finding solutions

In this fast-evolving research area, we want to grow our community of academics. We're working across diverse arenas, including healthcare, digital humanities and design, technology regulation, and engineering and artificial intelligence.

Can you help us to explore new avenues for our digital lives?
