WORKSHOP LEADER: Prof Jon Rowe, School of Computer Science / Director of Research for EPS

The aim of this workshop is to bring together colleagues from around the University who have an interest in Data Sciences and Artificial Intelligence, either as research subjects in their own right, or as they apply to different research areas (this might be technical, theoretical, experimental, qualitative or quantitative), and to discuss the University's partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, and how people can get involved. 

The main aims of the workshop are:

  • To find out more about how Data Science and AI feature in research around the campus
  • To identify potential new collaborative projects
  • To provide an update on the University’s partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, and how people can get involved.
  • To develop a Birmingham Institute for Data Science and AI, and explore how this might best work.

We strongly encourage academics from all Colleges to attend if they have an interest!

12:00 - 1:00 Lunch - all welcome
