Institute of Applied Data Science



image: logos-combinedThe Institute of Applied Data Science has strong links with a range of industrial, academic and clinical partners, as well as other key stakeholders. Alongside a number of industrial collaborations maintained with our member's Research Projects, we also have several Institute-level strategic partnerships. If you are interested in working with the Institute of Applied Data Science, please do contact us.

The Alan Turing Institute

Queen Mary University of London is a university partner of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.  The Alan Turing Institute’s goals are to undertake world-class research in data science and artificial intelligence, apply its research to real-world problems, drive economic impact and societal good, train a new generation of scientists, and shape the public conversation around data. We currently have 41 faculty members serving as Turing Fellows. 

Available opportunities for Turing research calls and seed funding will be listed on this page.

American International Group (AIG)

American International Group, Inc. (AIG) is a leading global insurance organisation. Building on 100 years of experience, today AIG member companies provide a wide range of property casualty insurance, life insurance, retirement products, and other financial services to customers in more than 80 countries and jurisdictions. We are working with AIG on advanced data modelling techniques in the area of financial services.

Barts and the Royal London NHS Trust

The  Barts and the Royal London NHS Trust is an NHS trust covering several medical facilities in the East of London, including St Bartholomew's Hospital. The Institute of Applied Data Science has excellent clinical links and we work closely with the trust for essential clinical perspective and expertise, as well as access to a cohort of approximately 6 million patients.

Endeavour Health Charitable Trust

The Endeavour Health Charitable Trust  is a charity that focuses on improving healthcare through information technology. It contributes funds to the development and operation of an NHS owned data service (called Discovery), designed to help professionals and citizens access all relevant health and care data about a patient or population of patients. We work closely with Endeavour on finding new ways to exploit data science to improve UK healthcare provisioning.

Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research

The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research supports mathematics in the UK through Research Fellowships and sabbatical opportunities for mathematicians and data scientists, and through a programme of conferences, workshops and focused research activities. Research areas of interest include, but are not restricted to Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Computational Statistics, Data Science, Number Theory, Probability, and Quantum Information. The Heilbronn Institute is run as a partnership between the UK Government Communications Headquarters and the UK academic mathematics community. It has facilities in Bristol, London and Manchester. In 2021 the Heilbronn Institute has co-funded a joint four-year PhD studentship with QMUL IADS (PI: Professor Michael Farber, Director of IADS).

IBM Research

The IBM Research is the research and development division for IBM, an American multinational information technology company headquartered in Armonk, New York, with operations in over 170 countries. IBM Research is the largest industrial research organization in the world and has twelve labs on six continents.  The IBM Research Europe, working across two locations: Daresbury and Hursley, UK, is a growing team of over 60 researchers, computational scientists and engineers. The IBM Research Europe's research is motivated by today’s most pressing challenges to UK industries and institutions. The IBM Research Europe brings cutting-edge computational science and engineering as well as applicable technologies, such as data-centric cognitive computing, to boost the growth and development of the UK economy. IADS works closely with the IBM Research Europe on finding new ways to exploit data science to improve the UK's data centric cognitive computing technologies.
