Our strategic partnership with The Alan Turing Institute

About The Alan Turing Institute

What is The Alan Turing Institute?

Our strategic partnership commitment

"We’re excited to continue our alliance with The Alan Turing Institute as a Strategic Partner and show what can be achieved when talented researchers from academia join forces with diverse industry expertise."

— GAVIN STEPHENSON, Managing Director, UK&I Lead – Applied Intelligence, Accenture

Our partnership in four pillars

Joint research

Joining forces to develop and apply leading-edge research and tools in data science, data analytics and AI. Considering the big questions, like delivering maximum value from AI and data; enabling safe and robust application of AI; and lowering barriers to AI adoption.

Use case development

Collaborating to translate research outputs into practical Accenture offerings, products and platforms.

Students and scholarships

Offering internship opportunities with Accenture for PhD Masters and DPhil students, giving them real world opportunities to apply new research directly to client problems—as well as the chance to author white papers and other thought leadership outputs.

Skills and training

Working together to deliver two key programmes:

  1. Executive education—supporting and enabling Accenture and our clients to optimise the use of AI for business.
  2. Data science fundamentals for Accenture data scientists.

What we do: Our research

Synthetic data and privacy-enhancing technologies

Developing new ways to generate and evaluate synthetic data, to allow data sharing between teams, whilst safeguarding individual anonymity.

Digital twins

Building advanced AI-powered replicas of highly complex systems and processes to allow for rapid scenario-based experimentation and optimisation.

Project FAIR - Responsible AI

Ensuring AI systems fully realise their transformative potential, whilst simultaneously remaining free from bias, transparent, verifiable and robust.
