Warwick and the Alan Turing Institute

Warwick and the Alan Turing Institute


The Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science, with headquarters at the British Library. Its mission is to bring researchers across disciplines together to advance the world-changing potential of data science.


The University of Warwick is a founding partner of The Alan Turing Institute alongside the universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The Institute has partnerships with Lloyd’s Register Foundation, GCHQ, HSBC and Intel.

Research at Warwick enhances and is enhanced by our relationship with the Alan Turing Institute, forging interdisciplinary links across departments and between institutes with expertise in data science.

Through mathematical representations, inference and learning, the use of systems and platforms, and by understanding human behaviour Warwick’s Alan Turing Institute researchers contribute to advancements in engineering, technology, defence and security, smarter cities, financial services, health and wellbeing.

Their work enables them to provide technically informed advice to policy makers on the wider implications of algorithms; work together to undertake research with practical applications; and acts as a magnet for leaders in academia and industry from around the world to engage with the UK in data science and its applications.

There are over twenty Fellows of the Alan Turing Institute at Warwick plus staff, researchers and students who have joint positions across Warwick and the Institute in London. The headquarters in the British Library in London provides a research hub for academics to collaborate with other institutions and provides a London base for their research activity, with strong links back to their expertise and networks at Warwick where they spend the majority of their time.
