The training programme has been designed with input from the CDT's industrial partners, ensuring that the skills it will develop are relevant and valuable to industry.
Alongside their individual PhD project, students will engage in diverse training activities in three areas:
Technical skills training
Training in responsible research and innovation for AI
Transferable skills training.
Training activities include:
Technical training in model-based techniques for safe and trusted AI
Interdisciplinary training on responsible research and innovation for AI
Training on the philosophy and ethics of AI
Public engagement training
Entrepreneurial mindset training
A group project, run in collaboration with the CDT’s industrial partners
Regular seminars and masterclasses on broad-ranging topics relevant to the development of STAI
A hackathon, framed around challenges co-developed with the CDT’s industrial partners
Diversity and inclusion training, including mentoring practices, impact of diversity and inclusion on group dynamics, and inclusive strategies for good research practice.
In addition, students will have the opportunity to apply for an internship at one of the CDT’s partner organisations and to bid for an enrichment placement at the Alan Turing Institute.
