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, and shape the public conversation around data and algorithms.

HDR UK sits on the Alan Turing Institute’s Data Skills Taskforce, set up to aid collaboration and sharing of good practice for data science and AI education, in addition to raising awareness of the value of UK data and to identify training gaps in the workforce.
