Doctoral Research Centre in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
排名: 15 (TCUG)
課程長度: 36 months
The Doctoral Research Centre (DRC) in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a 3 years PhD programme offered jointly by the School of Informatics and the School of Mathematics. The DRC follows on from the EPSRC CDT in Data Science.The DRC recognises that if researchers in this area wish to be leaders in AI and shape the technology landscape, they must be deeply conversant in both data science and AI. Only then will they be able to direct and better understand how to research, develop and target technologies that will be the pioneering breakthroughs.Data science is the study of the computational principles, methods and systems for extracting knowledge from data. Almost every activity in science, society and commerce now relies on data-driven decision making --- from large data analytics in biology to small companies deploying data-collecting apps to millions of customers.AI is the study of computational systems that demonstrate capabilities of perception, reasoning, learning and action that are typical of human intelligence. We have also recently seen an explosive growth in the capability of modern AI technologies. The great recent successes of modern AI, such as object recognition and game playing, are based on data-driven approaches rooted in machine learning and deep networks.Our programme will allow you to specialise and perform advanced research at the interface of Data Science and AI and gain breadth and practical experience throughout the field.You will be supervised by one of our 85 world-renowned faculty members. You will also benefit from interacting with a group of 30+ leading industrial partners, including Microsoft Research, Aberdeen Standard, Amazon, Samsung, Huawei, IBM and IBM Research amongst many others.

International students arriving in Edinburgh can access various help and assistance to integrate with their new community. This starts at the International Student Centre where advice and assistance is available with fees and finance as well as legal matters such as immigration advice and visas. There is also a number of events organised by the ISC including weekly themed nights representing different countries and subsidized trips around the country. There are also campus wide events such as International Evening and the International Desserts Night to help students bring their own culture to others. The Edinburgh University Students Association (EUSA) is the combination of the unions and the Student Representative Council and has buildings around the campus including Teviot Row House, Potterrow, Kings Buildings House and the Pleasance. Teviot Row House has claims as the oldest purpose built student union building in the world. EUSA is responsible for some 250 societies for students to become involved with outside the classroom. Edinburgh itself is an important centre for the performing arts, particularly comedy, amateur and fringe theatre and numerous groups within the university are involved in this area. The Theatre Company was founded in 1896 and the Drama Society runs Bedlam Theatre, the oldest student run theatre in the UK. There is a weekly newspaper produced by students along with an independent publication and an alternative music radio station. In sports, there are 67 clubs ranging from rugby and football to judo and gliding.
