Open-Call: Develop your AI solutions with The Alan Turing Institute

New collaboration between The Alan Turing Institute and Digital Catapult provides funding for London startups and scaleups to open their data challenges to researchers.

This collaboration will provide financial support for nine separate startup or scaleup companies to participate as a Challenge Owner in any one of the Data Study Groups held between December 2018 and March 2020. The purpose of this open call is open new opportunities for eligible startups and scaleups to work together with academic researchers on data driven industry challenges.

A Data Study Group is a five-day ‘collaborative hackathon’ which aims to find data science solutions to real-world problems. These week-long events allow organisations to work with the Institute in a unique setting. Data Study Groups engage talent from across the UK and further afield, providing access to a pool of researchers they may never otherwise have the opportunity to collaborate with.  Previous Data Study Groups have led to wider and deeper collaborations stemming from opportunities spotted during these intensive weeks.

Who should apply?

This is an opportunity for early stage artificial intelligence companies to interested in working with a team of doctoral students, early career researchers, and post-docs from across a broad range of disciplines, whose quick, agile thinking will help tackle your challenge. A facilitator is also pre-selected by the Institute for each challenge to help the team fulfil their potential and ensure everybody is engaged.

Next steps

The Alan Turing Institute Data Study Group Challenge Owner open call is designed to actively encourage startups and scaleups to work together with academic researchers on data driven industry challenges.

This initiative is part of Digital Catapult’s Machine Intelligence Garage programme, commissioned as part of CAP-AI project, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The programme objective is to help AI and machine learning businesses gain access to the technical expertise, computation power, knowledge and innovation they need to succeed, grow and realise the UK’s economic potential in this area. The project will enable AI start-ups and scale-ups to take part in innovation activities, working closely with industry, academia and other AI businesses.
