King's awarded network development grant by The Alan Turing Institute

Grant awarded by Alan Turing Institute

Turing Network Development Awards

King’s has received a Turing Network Development Award from The Alan Turing Institute, following an application to its inaugural network funding programme. 

King’s application demonstrated its proven research excellence, having long been at the forefront of work on AI and data science, from foundational computational work to application in healthcare and humanities, as well as addressing the social and legal implications of these technologies.

The Turing Network Development awards, which have been made to 24 universities across the UK, are aimed at cementing links with The Alan Turing Institute and supporting the development of communities of experts in AI and data science. Commenting on the award, Professor Michael Luck of the Department of Informatics, who leads various AI projects at King’s, said:

The timing of this award is ideal, complementing work that we are already doing to map our activities and interests and to consolidate our multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach. What makes King’s distinct is in the way in which different disciplines come together across different projects, bringing a unique King’s perspective, which will be enhanced by this collaboration with The Turing Institute.”

King’s work on the Turing Network Development award is being coordinated by its newly established Institute for Artificial Intelligence. For more information on the award and King’s activities, contact us at:
