23 February 2021

The Alan Turing Institute is inviting early career researchers to apply for the latest Data Studies Group, which offers an opportunity for early career researchers to develop their data science skills using real-world data.

A participant in a past Data Studies Group


PhDs, postdocs, those with equivalent non-traditional qualifications/experience and other early career researchers are encouraged to to apply for the event, which will run remotely over three weeks.

The event also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects and to build links within The Alan Turing Institute and industry.

The challenges put forward are:

  • CityMaaS - Making travel in cities accessible for people with disabilities through prediction and personalisation
  • Entale - Recommendation Systems for Podcast Discovery
  • Odin Vision - Exploring AI supported decision-making for early-stage diagnosis of colorectal cancer
  • University of Sheffield / Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) – Predictive maintenance of robotic machining tools using acceleration and force data
  • Wearable Sensors - Activity recognition using wrist-worn accelerometersFor Full details of this format, including the time commitment involved are availiable on the Turing's event page.
