Alan Turing Institute opens to promote data science

Data science is a tricky field to define. The term was coined over 30 years ago, and incorporates many different disciplines including mathematics, statistics and artificial intelligence. The idea is to make observations and developments based on data – collections of values which can be analysed. The Alan Turing Institute aims to extract knowledge from very large-scale and diverse digital data. If this sounds a little convoluted and vague, then just think of the type of work accomplished by the institute’s namesake. Alan Turing was born in 1912, and was a true pioneer. In 1936 he invented the Turing Machine, which was an early example of a Central Processing Unit (CPU). Every computer has a CPU, which performs the basic logical operations provided by a computer program. During the second…
