TU secures funding from Alan Turing Award

Congratulations to our colleagues at Teesside University on securing funding from the Alan Turing Institute, the UKs national institute for data science and artificial intelligence!

The Turing Network Development Award will help drive collaboration between academia and industry in the use of AI.

Teesside University’s project will be led by Dr Claudio Angione and Professor The Anh Han, who are both leading academics in the field of AI and together head up Teesside University’s Centre for Digital Innovation.

They will be organising both regional and national events aimed at promoting the use of AI, sharing knowledge and best practice and are currently working with a wide range of companies in all sectors including Healthcare and Life Sciences, Digital and Creative, Energy and Renewables, eCommerce, Communication, Manufacturers, NetZero and Decarbonisation.

The events will be able to demonstrate the impact that has resulted from the use of AI as well encouraging further collaboration.

Dr Angione said: “We believe that AI is still underused in several applications and there is still a gap between academic research and its use in industry. “Therefore, we want this network to act as a bridge between scientists and stakeholders from industry, clinicians and patient organisations.”
