UCL will be one of five academic partners for the new Alan Turing Institute for Data Science. Based at the new King’s Cross Knowledge Quarter, the national Institute will draw together computer scientists, mathematicians, statisticians and more to work on this key driver for the economy.

Professor Sofia Olhede, scientific director of the UCL Big Data Institute and Centre for Data Science, said:

‘We are absolutely delighted to play a leading role in the start-up of the Alan Turing Institute. Data science is integral to UCL’s vision and strategy. The launch of the ATI and its placement in the new Knowledge Quarter will further reinforce Bloomsbury as a focus of national and international activities in this exciting field.’
