Centre of Excellence for Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and modelling
Our story

Breaking traditional boundaries to bring new technologies in data science and AI.
The Challenge
The power of artificial intelligence and data science is rapidly changing the world. This can be seen in almost every walk of life and at every level of society. Educating the next generation of data scientists and artificial intelligence practitioners and conducting research in this vital field are part of responding to this global challenge.

What we do

Through the launch of the University’s new Centre of Excellence for Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Modelling (DAIM), we are responding to the increasing need for qualified practitioners by delivering a step-change in the provision of educational excellence – and high quality research – which cuts across traditional disciplinary departmental and faculty boundaries.

Crucially, through knowledge exchange, DAIM’s ambitions encompass the provision of exemplary service within the University, and beyond to the public sector, that will enhance mutual goals and tackle complex industry issues.

DAIM will become a portal for business partnerships and will deliver dynamic inter-disciplinary collaborations and external partnerships leading to research and skills outcomes that are of strategic priority to our region, the UK and the world.
