Alan Turing Institute researches AI with cloud computing resource

Andrew Blake More than 100 research staff  will soon begin work at The Alan Turing Institute, a major new UK centre for data science. Researchers include computer scientists and engineers, and experts in machine learning, to statisticians, mathematicians and social scientists. Andrew Blake, the Institute’s director, writes: “Cloud services will provide our data scientists with an easily accessible platform where they can prototype ideas with a fast turnaround of results, complementing local computing facilities available in the Institute’s five founding universities, and national resources such as the supercomputer ARCHER supported by EPSRC.” Areas of study will include computer-intensive activities such as data analytics at scale, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) computing. Jeannette M. Wing, corporate vice president of Microsoft Research, believes the Alan Turing Institute is “a unique place where researchers from…
