About us

The Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence’s vision is to develop innovative approaches to the use of data and artificial intelligence in modern society, covering the entire spectrum from collection through interrogation and analysis, to interpretation, visualisation and communication.

The Institute is a step change in the University of Exeter’s data analytic capabilities enabling cutting-edge fundamental research, driving new collaborations and creating transformative impact.

Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the new Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDSAI) in Exeter. The IDSAI brings together leading interdisciplinary researchers from across all of Exeter’s Departments, Colleges and Institutes, to drive exciting new research and education.

We undertake fundamental research in data science and AI and facilitate interactions between data science researchers and problem owners to develop innovative approaches to the use of data in modern society, considering the social implications of data science and AI as well as the technical aspects. To achieve this we work closely with other researchers, industry and government, for instance with key partners such as the Alan Turing Institute.

We aim to enhance local and national skills by providing research inspired learning through our masters and undergraduate degree programmes, whilst also promoting the employability of our graduates.

We welcome new partners to help us deliver this vision and encourage you to get in touch.
