A partner of The Alan Turing Institute


Newcastle University and The Alan Turing Institute

In recognition of Newcastle’s world-leading expertise in computing and mathematics, and the application of this research in data science, the University has become a partner of 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 Institute’s goals are to undertake:

  • world-class research in data science and artificial intelligence
  • apply its research to real-world problems
  • drive economic impact and societal good
  • lead the training of a new generation of scientists
  • shape the public conversation around data

Newcastle's partnership with the Alan Turing Institute

This new partnership enables Newcastle to increase the impact of its research, and collaborate with other leading researchers from around the UK and beyond.

As a member of the Institute’s network of leading universities, Newcastle is developing collaborative programmes of research to advance world-class research in data science. This activity is led by 12 Turing Fellows, who are senior academics representing all three faculties in the University, but includes a much wider group of researchers and staff from across the University.

Through its research and engagement with The Alan Turing Institute, Newcastle University is contributing:

  • excellent interdisciplinary research in science, engineering, social sciences, humanities and healthcare
  • expertise in cloud computing, data science, statistics, machine learning and visualisation
  • large scale urban sensing and data analytics
  • personalised healthcare
