“Thirty-five researchers, spanning many disciplines and all six Colleges at Exeter, have received the Turing Fellowships, which begin on October 1st 2021.
A further five academics have retained their Fellowships through existing roles and projects with The Alan Turing Institute.
The 12-month Fellowships not only allow the academics to enhance their careers, but also help pioneer world-leading research in the field of data science. They support the researchers to spend a proportion of their time at The Alan Turing Institute headquarters in London where they will join a hub of world-leading data science and AI expertise drawn from across the Turing’s network of partners.”
