What we're about

We are the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

We host regular events discussing the latest trends in data science and AI. We also hold workshops and seminars for researchers. Most of our events (https://turing.ac.uk/events/) and talks are free and open to all.

Sign up for our newsletter mailing list (http://eepurl.com/bSgZ2z) to be kept informed about what’s coming up.

We run regular calls for Visiting Researchers to join the Institute and support our research. Look out for these on our Opportunities (https://turing.ac.uk/opportunities/) page.

We are exploring how we might host Turing Data Science Meetups to discuss and explore how Data Science Will Change the World alongside our research events.

In the meantime, you can watch our "What is data science?" video to get a sense of The Alan Turing Institute and our research goals:


Data science has emerged in response to the growing need to make sense of the billions of gigabytes of data generated globally every day, and their powerful impact on our society, economy and way of life.

But what exactly is it?

To mark one year since our launch as the national centre for data science, we talked to some of the social scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, engineers, and industry and government thinkers who are driving this new area of research in The Alan Turing Institute about what data science means to them – and the role of the Institute in pioneering this new science.
