The Alan Turing Institute has welcomed 46 new Turing Fellows from Queen Mary University of London.
19 October 2018
The Turing Fellows come from all three faculties of the University and are senior academics who will spend a portion of their time at the Institute pursuing research in data science and artificial intelligence.
Earlier this year Queen Mary became a university partner of the Institute, which is the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence, as part of a £5m investment.
The news is part of a wider announcement as the Institute welcomes more than 250 new and returning Turing Fellows as it launches its third academic year.
For the first time, this new cohort of Fellows is drawn from 11 universities around the UK, following the expansion of its university network from five founding university partners to thirteen.
Professor Wen Wang, Vice-Principal and Executive Dean (Science & Engineering), said: “We are very proud to be a university partner with the Turing Institute and this announcement represents a fantastic opportunity for our academics to work closely with the Institute to build upon our world leading research activity.
“With all three faculties involved our academics will be able to work across disciplines and push the boundaries of data science and AI.”
The Institute will also launch more than 50 new research projects in the coming months, all generated in partnership with the expanded university network.
The Institute now counts over 400 researchers in its community. This includes Turing Fellows (the largest group, made up of senior academics spending a portion of their time at the Institute), Turing Research Fellows (independent researchers employed by a partner university and based at the Institute), Doctoral Students (full time or spending an ‘enrichment’ period at the Institute) and visiting researchers from academia, business and government.
