Turing Fellows are scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence (AI) or a related field whose research will be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners. 

The Bristol Turing Fellows come from a number of disciplines across all Faculties, with expertise ranging from social sciences, health, arts, engineering, computer science, and mathematics demonstrating the power of multidisciplinarity when working on solutions to societal challenges employing new methodologies in machine learning and AI. 

Professor Kate Robson Brown, Turing University Lead said: ‘Bristol is an established partner of the Alan Turing Institute and this is an exciting time for our new Fellows to take up the opportunity to engage and drive agendas at a national level. The success across the university, in every Faculty, is evidence of the strength and breadth of the expertise at Bristol. We aim to lead the way in supporting multidisciplinary research which seeks to lever benefit to our communities.’ 

Professor Phil Taylor, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Enterprise said: ‘Bristol is leading the development of state of the art technologies in data science and AI that are having a profound effect in society. We are proud to support this cohort of Bristol experts who are working on new ways to harness the opportunities offered by these technologies’
