Leading UK researchers will develop cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) technologies through prestigious fellowships announced today, 27 November.
The novel AI techniques they will develop could have wide-ranging impact, for example:
- combatting cancer
- developing digital twins that can aid us in modelling and understanding air pollution
- improving cybersecurity through developing more robust and transparent AI algorithms.
Fifteen researchers have been awarded Turing AI Acceleration fellowships, named after AI pioneer Alan Turing.
The fellowships are supported by a £20 million government investment, being delivered by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), to lead innovative and creative AI research with transformative impact.
