Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

Foundations of Data Science

Foundations of Data Science Theme Leads Professor Richard Everson and Dr Fabrizio Costa

The Foundations of Data Science lie in methodology for the analysis, interpretation and organisation of complex data. Our academic expertise covers a wide range of topics such as data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, statistical science, causal inference, optimisation, uncertainty quantification, dynamic modelling and simulation, complex systems and network analysis.

Technical work in machine learning and artificial intelligence is complemented by work on the philosophy of AI, and the extent to which conceptual and ethical assumptions are built into algorithms.

Theory Crunch

We have formed a new regular academic meeting, which will be held every 2 weeks during term time. The meeting will focus on the theory of data science and AI. If you would like to receive emails specifically about this group, please sign up here. The group is open to all at the University
