Turing Engagement Events - CHIMERA

21 July 2022, 2:00 pm–4:30 pm


Join the CHIMERA team at this multidisciplinary workshop to collaborate with other UCL researchers on a modelling challenge.

Event Information

Open to

UCL staff

20 Bedford Way

This collaborative event comes ahead of a series of clinically-led, multidisciplinary workshops, including ones delivered in a partnership between UCL's CHIMERA centre and the Alan Turing Institute, that will be themed around specific opportunities to improve care. The purpose this event to offer a new opportunity for multidisciplinary collaborations between UCL researchers, particularly those in mathematics, computer science, data science and those with an interest in data modelling. We particularly welcome attendees with experience in mathematical and computational modelling, data science and/or machine learning techniques. This event is only open to UCL-affiliated research professionals.

Participants will use data and a specific problem provided by the CHIMERA team to look for insights - and future collaboration - from other modellers and/or data scientists on how to resolve a specific and important modelling challenge. The scenario to be explored will be based around how CHIMERA are using mathematics to model the lung in intensive care. We hope that this will lead to a paper and new collaborations around the project.

Refreshments will be provided during the event.

About the organisers


A new UCL centre launched in Autumn 2020 that uses tools such as machine learning to analyse currently unused intensive care data to find clues that will improve the care of critically ill adults and babies.

The Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute, headquartered in the British Library, London, was created as the national institute for data science in 2015. In 2017, as a result of a government recommendation, we added artificial intelligence to our remit.

The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing , whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing are considered to be the key disciplines comprising the fields of data science and artificial intelligence.

UCL and the Turing

The hub for all things Turing at UCL. UCL's university liaison team are responsible for managing the relationship between the Turing and UCL researchers.
