Gwern Hywel, the University’s Institute for Data Science and AI (IDSAI) Programme Manager, updated PS staff on Data Science and AI activity at UoM at a Digital Futures meeting to improve cross-working between PS staff in all three UoM faculties working in digital-related areas. IDSAI, formerly the Data Science Institute, recently made the name change to reflect that of its Partner, the Alan Turing Institute (National Institute for Data Science and AI). AI activity isn’t a new feature of the well-established Institute, which has over 800 members, and Gwern discussed IDSAI’s strategic partnerships with IBM, BBC and more, biweekly seminar series and annual International conference.
