U.K. Government To Fund AI University Courses With £115m

#artificialintelligence

The U.K. government is planning to fund thousands of postgraduate students that want to study a Masters or a PhD in artificial intelligence as it looks to keep pace with the U.S. and China. AI is poised to become the most significant technology for a generation but there are only so many people that know how to develop the technology, which could have a huge impact on industries such as healthcare, energy, and automotive. Business Secretary Greg Clark and Digital Secretary Jeremy Wright announced on Thursday that the government will commit up to £115 million towards training the next generation of AI talent. In a press release, the government said 1,000 students will receive funding to enable them to complete PhDs at 16 U.K. Research and Innovation AI Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), located across the country. The full list of centres can be found at the end of this article.

Using Artificial Intelligence To Avert 'Environmental Catastrophe' - Liwaiwai

#artificialintelligence

A new Centre at the University of Cambridge will develop artificial intelligence techniques to help address some of the biggest threats facing the planet. Funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the Centre for Doctoral Training in Application of Artificial Intelligence to the study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER) is one of 16 new Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) announced today. The Cambridge Centre will be led by Professor Simon Redfern, Head of the Department of Earth Sciences. Climate risk, environmental change and environmental hazards pose some of the most significant threats we face in the 21st century. At the same time, we have increasingly larger datasets available to observe the planet, from the atomic scale all the way through to global satellite observations.

"These datasets represent a transformation in the way we can study and understand the Earth and environment, as we assess and find solutions to environmental risk," said Redfern.


Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare Imperial News Imperial College London

#artificialintelligence

On 1st October 2019, the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare opens its doors to their first cohort. The United Kingdom Research and Innovation Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare (AI4Health) will open its doors to the first cohort of PhD students in October. Director Dr Aldo Faisal and the whole AI4Health Team are looking forward to getting started and turning vision into practice. Imperial College London understand the term "AI" as meaning the development of intelligent systems that embody a practical solution. However, practical solutions involving AI will require a broader approach and the College will drive technical innovation by providing broad training for exploitation of multiple technological strategies within the broader realm of AI.
