Are you ready for the digital age?

Free and open learning resources on Data Science and AI topics are available at The Alan Turing Institute


The Building safety Act 2022 has heralded in a new digital need for the appointed professionals in the construction sector ... statutory records relating to the Golden Thread of Information must be kept in digital format for easy access and retrieval when necessary ...

The last decade has seen a dramatic rise in computer power, in data and scientific break-throughs, as in deep learning and neural networks. Together, these advances have led to the emergence of data science and the resurgence of artificial intelligence (AI) – ‘machines that think’, as imagined in Alan Turing’s landmark research paper published in 1950. 

Data science and AI have the power to change the world. When the history of the 21st century is written, it now seems inevitable that data, informatics and AI will have had as transformative an impact on society as any of the three previous phases of the industrial revolution.  

This power means there are few things more important to the UK’s future prosperity and societal wellbeing than the ethical development and deployment of these technologies.
