The University of Southampton is set to spearhead the next generation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovators as part of a £100m investment from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

The new UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Machine Intelligence for Nano-electronic Devices and Systems (MINDS) will draw upon complementary expertise from within the School of Electronics and Computer Science and the Zepler Institute for Photonics and Nanoelectronics.

MINDS CDT, one of 16 new Centres announced under the latest round of UKRI funding, will lead a research training programme that focuses on the benefits of future AI systems and their application in a wide variety of domains.

The Centre, which is directed by Professor Tim Norman and co-directed by Professor Themis Prodromakis, is recruiting for students to commence their PhDs in September 2019.
