The Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science, with headquarters at the British Library. Its mission is to bring researchers across disciplines together to advance the world-changing potential of data science.
The University of Oxford is a founding partner of The Alan Turing Institute alongside the universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, UCL and Warwick, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The Institute has industry partnerships with Lloyd’s Register Foundation, GCHQ and Intel.
The University of Oxford contributes to all of the Alan Turing Institute’s core strategic priorities: mathematical representations, inference and learning, systems and platforms, and understanding human behaviour; as well as contributing to the Turing mission to undertake data science research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics and systems engineering; provide technically informed advice to policy makers on the wider implications of algorithms; enable researchers from industry and academia to work together to undertake research with practical applications; and act as a magnet for leaders in academia and industry from around the world to engage with the UK in data science and its applications.
Oxford and The Alan Turing Institute augments the Turing by including the greater University of Oxford data science community, forging links across the myriad of departments and institutes with expertise in data science. We hope the information provided therein will help you interact with the data science community at Oxford and we welcome you to Oxford and the Turing.
