Data science and artificial intelligence have the potential to revolutionise the way the world works.

By making better, smarter use of the data our societies produce, we can improve healthcare, foster government innovation, manage security in an insecure world, supercharge research in the sciences and humanities, and shine a light on the economy.

The UK’s Alan Turing Institute is one of the world’s leading data science organisations. The Institute’s Chief Executive, Professor Sir Alan Wilson, describes the Institute’s work, the challenges it seeks to address, and what the future of data science looks like.
